I am pleased to announce that my work has been sponsored by well known pen company Pilot!. Pilot pens sell their high quality products in more than 100 countries and have been established since 1918! I would like to thank the company very much for the pens and pencils they have sent to help me along with my final major project! I am more than grateful and very pleased to be sponsored by Pilot!
With the pens and pencils pilot have sent me I have produced the following drawings, I found the pens really easy to use and comfortable to hold especially when shading and cross hatching for a long period of time. The different line weights of the pens were brilliant and looked really good combined together and cross hatched. The pencils they sent me were really good I loved how they came as a pen with refillable lead, however the quality of the lead was excellent and nothing like an ordinary retractable pencil! again the pencils were really comfortable and easy to use. I would definitely recommend Pilot pens to all Students, Artists and Creative people!

Ice bath - fabric dying

Yesterday i did some development work for my final major project i tried experimenting with ice baths, i used ice cubes, discharge acid dyes and fixers, the technique created a crystal effect! I would like to thank Danielle Hardy for teaching me how to do this! After emptying the ice baths the ice cubes were a gorgeous colour and almost looked like little crystals themselves! Heres a sneek peek!

I have updated my facebook page with the new work for my final major project if anyone wants to check it out!

Printed length workshop

Yesterday I attended a printed length workshop which was taught by textiles technician Vicky Graham. I decided that this workshop would benefit towards my final major project because i think that long printed scarfs could be an option for final pieces. For the workshop we worked as a team with an old koda trace which Vicky had, here is a preview of what we did!

(This is the print that was left on the table unfortunately I don't have a photo of the finished fabric yet)
