Printing on Canvas Paper

I thought I would try printing my images onto canvas paper. The paper was from a watercolour sketchbook . I used an inkjet printer to print the image. I think this is a nice technique, but the printer caused the print to have lines from build up of ink.

Objects Photo shoot

I’ve photographed my objects, click here to view the contact sheet.

As you can see, the egg and the mirror have reflections, which I don’t want so I’ll have to edit these out in photoshop.

Objects

Here are the objects for my photoshoot, I just need to buy the rose.

  • I bought the mirror from Matthew Williamson’s ‘Butterfly Home’ range in Debenhams.
  • I sprayed a regular chicken egg to create the golden egg.
  • The bowl will also have porridge and a spoon with it when I do the photo shoot. I got this from a charity shop.
  • I bought the hair from a beauty supply shop. (It’s real human hair- as opposed to synthetic)
  • The axe is my Dad’s (was my Grandad’s) and is at least 30 years old, which I love because the years of wear & tear make it look more authentic.

Catalogue Discussion

The other students & I discussed the possibility of creating a digital catalogue. The class agreed that this would be a good idea as it would look professional, would be more stimulating to use, would reach a wider audience and wouldn’t cost us anything to produce.

Here is an example of a digital publication- ACHE magazine, hosted on ISSUU: http://issuu.com/achemagazine/docs/january2013

Wood Transfer Photos

I came across this idea on Pinterest a while ago and I would love to try it with my photos. This would meet my desire for having hand crafted artefacts.
