Handmade Yarn Needles

blog wooden yarn needlesTake one dried branch, a rotary tool, and a bit of time, and what do you get? Handmade wooden yarn needles from eco sourced materials. Sourced local, made local, made by hand, and each one is unique. Pretty cool. I’ll be making more of these soon.

Pulled Prints

blog 2x4 woodcutThe 2×4 woodcut experiment from THIS blog post worked. It took a little experimenting to work around  challenges like the grain and a knot in the wood. Ink retarder helped hugely, I suspect it is a necessity in our house with low humidity. Now to trim up each print.

Another Printmaking Experiment

 2x4 wood cutI’ve decided instead of boring everyone with rants regarding the upcoming federal election, that I will instead bore you with some experimental art projects (LOL).

Today’s experiment is a scrap piece of 2×4 used for a wood cut for printmaking. I have no idea how this will print. I am hoping for a rustic feel, and maybe even some grain showing (like in the wax crayon test on the left). Maybe tomorrow I will print it. Sometimes you just have to have a play.
