Was thinking for a while about spray paint on leather so decided to experiment.
Result, not that great. Which means I need to figure out how to do it correctly, or maybe use it in a different way.
Used 染めQ which is available and promoted at Tokyu Hands. As I wanted an original, prepared my own stencil.
It is difficult to cut Stencil accurately.
Spray paint should be applied accurately and from a distance. Otherwise, too much paint is applied which leaks out of the stencil. This is exactly what happened to me. I was too eager to spray, when I should have used shorter spray period from a longer distance
Anyway, the result is not bad, a bit cryptic. But this matches what I wanted. A cryptic message.
My latest and quite simple Leather Craft project. A Canvas Tote bag with Bauhaus leather logo. A very simple project of transferring the logo to the leather. Just using a pen to transfer was not deep enough, so used stamping tools which added some artifacts in the design which I like
Trying new techniques to improve my skills and variety of designs I will be able to create.
Plan is for a bag decoration.
Took Picasso drawing of a dove, and transferred it to Leather.
Currently reading 暗幕のゲルニカ, a story about Picasso’s Guernica, relationship with Dora Maar, as well as story about a Japanese woman living in New York. This drawing was mentioned in the story and felt this is a good drawing to try. Simple, clear and famous.
