Pencil Shaving Fairy

Day 253 – Pencil Shaving Fairy

For today’s fairy I drew an outline in pencil on some cartridge paper. Then I drew over the outline in glue before pouring some pencil shavings from my pencil sharpener onto the glue. I shook off the excess shavings.

As you can see, some of the coloured lead dust from inside the pencil sharpener stuck to the outline more than the shavings…

Cling Film Art Fairy

Day 180 – Cling Film Art Fairy

I have only just come across this technique – essentially just put dollops of various colours of paint onto some cartridge paper, cover the page with cling film and rub the colours together to mix.

I chose to use acrylic paint so that when I removed the cling film, the texture would remain.

I then drew the fairy onto the dried paint and cut the silhouette using scissors.
