Still inching along my Plaster of Paris encaustic Pavillon Chinois images.  Here’s a section from one of the images I’ve been working on today. I printed the image onto TAP (Transfer Artist Paper) then ironed that onto acid-free tissue paper … Continue reading

Living and Dyeing


“Walking was an essential component of our work. There was music. There were rich silences. Times of deep listening, experiential drawing and the gathering of “gorgeous nothings”…spontaneous poetry noted while wandering as well as performances of aleatory poetry created by reading together.”

Is this Heaven? This is Australian artist India Flint talking about the first of some masterclasses she held this year in Newburgh, a village on the banks of the River Tay (Scotland).

There I was, tidying the kitchen cupboards  and I came across several boxes of unused coffee machine filters, of varying sizes. I use a cafetière now. I’ve had these redundant filters for years. I don’t like throwing things away even … Continue reading

On My Worktable: Revealing the Invisible: Methylene Blue and Malachite Green


Some cells and grids. I’m playing around with a couple of the colours I bought a while back, Methylene Blue and Malachite Green.

Both are blue in dilution. Both have a variety of uses. My interest is in how they might be used to reveal what is otherwise invisible. Continue reading
