Black Lutradur - gelli plate - Opulence Paints - stencil
Yes - I know I haven't blogged for some time - not that I have been doing nothing but in fact been very busy. I am working on quite a variety of things - lots for my workshops coming up but nothing resolved as yet. however I thought I would play with black Lutradur. There has been a bit of talk about Lutradur being discontinued - well this may be but we have plenty and our supplier tells me they have more than plenty so if you can't get it at your usual spot, you can get it from us. We have white in 4 weights and black in 70gsm.
Black is interesting - it takes metallic paints. I used my gelli plate and a stencil and red and gold Oppie paint. But I only worked through some parts of the stencil
Basically I am thrilled with hoe the black lutradur looks - we are selling it by the metre.
Not just that but the Hurricanes have beaten the Crusaders in Christchurch so maybe they are on the up.
Ian is working hard on threads.In-fusion which , trust me, will be out in March. i have promised him a train trip outing to Fremantle for lunch the day after I email it out. It's going to be a great issue - There are some fabulous articles. I think he just has my last article to go and of course all the contents and links etc. I will feed him well while he works.
