|Glassine envelopes, print protected in its envelope, big stack of work almost ready to go, used and saved glassine sheets|
Monday, August 1, 2011
Is my new favourite material; good thing as I have spent the weekend making 43 envelopes to hold each print. I have used it for years to layer between the unframed encaustics, but decided that, because this work was going to the gallery unframed, they needed more protection. And for the first time I worked on a sheet of glassine when I was applying the encaustic and working the surfaces. So much easier that the heavy plastic I used before. But now I have reams of left-over glassine with wax on it that I have saved . Don't know what it wants to be but it's to gorgeous to throw out. Do I hear the word "books"?
