O is for ONION
Onions are great little print blocks. Like a lot of different veggies
and fruits - see my blog entry "A" for Apple!
1. Cut an onion in half (Let the cut onion dry on a paper towel
for a couple of minutes before you print with it).
2. Mix your pigments (I use my own Colour Vie pigments).
3. It is helpful to print on a slightly padded surface - a piece of
polar fleece or even just a few layers of newspaper work well.
4. Make a stamp pad from a piece of foam ( or apply pigment
with a foam brush)
5. Print away and have fun!
