We've said it before--photocopiers are great tools!For this project, I placed a few flowers, leaves and stems directly upon the glass plate.
To keep from crushing them flat with the cover, I used a cloth over the arrangement before pushing the "copy" button.
The machine was NOT a color copier.
|TIP: Make a lighter copy, not too dark.|
If the paper is too slick, spray it with a matte
fixative first, which will help "grab" the pigment. (It will add tooth.)
I used Berol Prismacolor pencils, and yes,
the project reminded me a bit of coloring
as a kid in a coloring book.
BUT IT WAS FUN!
Try it yourself...I promise you'll enjoy it.
P.S. Here's a link to a really exciting project with photocopiers...
