Extraordinary Prints from Ordinary Objects - G

G is for Golf Ball!

After an all too brief visit to wonderful, sunny and WARM Aruba, 
I am back in wintry Toronto with G - for golf ball.

- Paint your fabric with a couple of layers of pigment and,
while it is still wet, roll, drag or press the golf ball into it.
Colour Vie Pigments are ideal for this.

Easy and fun, the golf ball gives you snakeskin like effects.

I scrunched up the fabric and painted it with green before
rolling a golf ball over it. Metallic golf ball prints added last.

Oops - I couldn't stay away from the credit card! (After I did
an overall golf ball print). Single gold metallic ball prints
were added after the fabric had dried.
A selection of African inspired golf ball prints.

Student work

And to end: a sunset view form The Beach House in Aruba.
