I decided to investigate the process of using a combination of different objects with paint for mark- making. I used tea bags; kitchen utensils; an old mascara brush; string; seashells; bubble wrap; leaves & rocks.
I tried to make a pattern by ‘stamping’/ printing seashells, but they didn’t make a recognisable/clear mark. So, I opted for bubble wrap instead to create an ‘under-the-sea’ effect. I will try to incorporate it into the backgrounds layouts for some of my pareidolia-characters.
I explored with different types of leaves to see what kind of print they make and then decided on the one I thought was the most effective.
I didn’t like the effect of the orange colour paint, but I will be using the blue, green and yellow mark making sheets as background for some of my pareidolia characters.
