Block printing with food colors and some doodling........


Hi Friends,

a peek into my sketch book........used wood blocks to print randomly all over the page using food color and then some doodling with a black fine tip pen ( three colors Red, Yellow and green mixed with water, btw each bottle of the food color powder at Rs 7/- and for all the following pages I used hardly a tsp each .....and a disclaimer....I do not use food colors in my food ever these were bought especially for some artsy satisfaction)

Random printing with different colors makes the colors blend in places and creates an awesome watercolor effect. While doodling, I tend to pick some printed patterns and then the design takes its own shape. I found the process almost meditative and most of the time the results are so organic !!

and if you think what use these are , then have a look at this............

I used this to decoupage a small note book..............the colors did not bleed, the patterns look even more vibrant after a coat of my home made mod podge mix, the doodling looks more defined and me so so happy whenever I pick up my notebook!!! .......a little stickles here and there on the pattern and its done...

 I am so happy with these intrinsically Indian colors, patterns and motifs, what about you.......would you like to see something like this printed as an Indian theme set of pattern papers ?

Please do leave your comments. I would love to read what you say and I would love to visit your blog too !!
