Transforming December 2007


My giant 2007 calendar came off the wall yesterday and December landed on my work table. I taped it down and gave it a good wash with Scarlet MX dye. I love the way dye transforms a dull white surface to a vivid color spectacle.

After the dye dried, I stamped with one of my homemade stamps, which had been cut from a piece of plumbers rubber gasket material. The rubber was mounted on a block of wood with water resistant double sided carpet tape, which holds up well to a lot of washings.

I've added some screen prints of cellular images.
