  • 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.

            My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

            None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

            What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
            The bags seem easier on the surface.
            But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

            Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

            As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...
