Would You Like To See a Tutorial?

......on   how  to  make  this  piece?--


It  looks  like   metal  embossing,  doesn't  it?   It's not--it's  all  made  with  aluminum  foil  and  various  other  mixed  media  techniques.   And  to  find  out  more,  just  head  on  over  HERE  at The House of Art and you can see how to get this effect with plain old  foil.    I  am  the  monthly  muse  there   for  March  right  now---cool!!   It's  amazing  what  you  can  do  with  everyday  aluminum  foil.  And if this is your first time there, stay and look around.  It's a great place for artists to see videos of other techniques and insightful articles written by some very talented artists.  And also check out the very cool giveaway that's going on for the month of March.   We have Emme to thank for  the start of this wonderful community  for all of us artists to  get  together for support and any kind of  help when we need it.  Thank You Emme!!

And  I'm  still in NYC  enjoying the sites--I'll  be  back  in   a couple  of days  with  pics!

Diane Writes said...

At first glance, I can't believe that part of the artwork was the everyday aluminum we use. I might consider trying this. :)

I hope you're having a great time in your trip!

Say It In Color said...

There is a comment about Bob on my blog, in reference to an old cartoon cutout (for you) I found in one of my mom's books she had slipped in there. Anyway, have always wanted to make you a copy and send you, because it reminds me of Bob....and you can save it, print it and use it in some of your art!!...somewhere, if you like!!! I LOVE the things you are producing!!! You have done an incredible amount of beautiful art....and you need to be a book, but I remember,....you got your own book at Christmas!! You are a treasure!

Say It In Color said...

Amazing tutorial!! and so simple....wow, the ideas are unlimited with this!!1 Thanks Diane!...

kluless said...

This is gorgeous! You are so talented I swear you could make something lovely out of ANYTHING. Bravo!

Cameron said...

Great tutorial! I just have one question...will other things work to color the foil besides alcohol inks?

I love the piece you put together using all those wonderful squares!!!

I have missed you and your art SO MUCH. I've hardly left my bed since I got home from California, but had to stop by and read your latest . How sweet that we were on different coasts at about the same time. I'll check out the video next, but wanted you to know I have missed reading your blog and saying hi each morning.

Dorthe said...

Diane, OHHH- thanks-
this is fantastic- and what you made looks gorgeus, dear.
Amazing that such a thing as normal foil, can look like that ,after being treated with a little paste-and paint--LOVE it.

--the verification word is :drank--I did not do that..but will go down to dinner and a glas of wine :)
