  • Shades of white

    Between the snow topic and the awesome paper waterfall Kevin posted, I thought I could meet half way and send a picture created by a local artist.
    The picture is white, no colors were used, no black, no pens crayons or paints.

    As Michael Barrymore might have said, "It looks allwhite to me" .

    (Brits might find the allusion to Michael Barrymore amusing. The rest of you will think, "Gill's flipped... again ".)

    What's it made out of, Carl? Paper? And is there a lot of embossing on it?

    There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

          It is paper.
          I do not know the artists name.
          I work out of City Hall and the front lobby is an art gallery that changes on a regular basis.

          I have always liked paper sculpture but I really found this to be a masterpiece. Even the rope looked braided. I think the whole thing was less than 18 inches wide.
          It was in a glass case I snapped the picture without a flash, thank goodness.
          The embossing is very deep and rich. I will see if I can find out who did it.

            Used a 788 for many years. It now resides with a crafty family friend.

            I'm 74, retired from the commercial dimensional advertising world. (carved and routed signs).
            I've always used the Roto-Zip, band saw, or other tools to make my projects. (wishing many times I had a good scroll saw). Well, I finally found an old DW-788 that the original owner said "it finally...

            by Linda In Phoenix
            I use acrylic paint mixed with water to stain when I want vibrant colors. There was an article in one of the issues awhile back where a product called "Unicorn Spit" was suggested for the colors---and many people swear by it....
