Experimentation- Glow in the dark and UV

May 24, 2010


Firstly with the glow in the dark spray paint. Shows up nicely, very bright! but it doesn’t dry clear. So I am going to use it inside the velcro page.

Secondly is the UV paint. This doesn’t work as well, it only shows up orange after you have shined the light onto it for literally a second. Going to try it again onto better quality card.

 Embossing the H stencil, hopefully to use as the front cover of my book.

Started off practicing with just white card and then I tried it with the leather paper that I wanted to use. It kept creasing quite a bit, so I wet the paper and then rolled it dryer on the blotting paper. Creasing still kept occuring though but I managed to smooth some of them out afterwards. Also tried embossing on just plain black paper too.

Maybe use different riddles for the pages?

Samples and more

May 5, 2010

So far I have ordered a few samples of papers from places like Inspire Me Papers, GF Smith and also a sample of rice paper.

Also I have purchased invisible UV paint, a little UV light, StarGlow clear reflective paint, a pack of 48 pieces of coloured cellophane and some coloured acetate sheets.

These are all part of my research, development, ideas generation, prototyping, experimentation and mock-ups.
