It's the 4th day of Ramadan, how has it been for you? Last Friday I went live on Instagram as part of #stayinwithLS. It was also our first live LS experience where we usually share behind the scenes of how we produce our shawl prints.
The theme was to make an artwork which you can have it displayed on your walls or fridge. During the live, some of the viewers were surprised at how a humble household item can be used to create interesting marks! My favourite tool got to be thread attached to chopstick and cotton buds.
Just look at that loose fluid marks made by the thread. All you have to do is to cut a piece or two thread or string and secure it on a chopsticks using tape. Soak the thread in water first so that it will be able to absorb more ink. I especially like dragging the thread sideways. Here are the samples I made during the live session.
You can also try to make your own Markmaking tools such as these.
Why not you give it a try making your own tools? Now that we have to stay home, it's a good time to make some art. Perhaps you can then turn it into postcards and snail mail it to your love ones!
