recycled shelf and attempts at print making

Recycled wood shelf:
Made from wood(dresser drawer and a window pane?) found on the street and leftover wall paint.

I told my father what I was looking to do and he found the wood, cut it up and then put it back together and I painted and sanded it.

Print made with cut-out wax paper

Rough milk pot sketches:
Came out craptacular. I need to get a thin wax pencil or maybe use pen and ink. I did this with oil pastels.

final image to be printed. Next I have to find paper or fabric to print on and then I will show you the results next week.

Yes, that's what I want to do. I am afraid to do it yet because I'm scared it is going to come out crappy and I am going to waste an expensive piece of fabric. Maybe I will try cotton or canvas first.

yes, but you can do some testprints on paper first and when it´s o.k.
you can print on fabrics.

:D LOVE the tea/coffee related print. Especially the little teabag. You're just adding the torture caused by my parents refusing to let me open my Gocco until 25th December. Too many ideas- no gocco :(

p.s. your dad sounds very useful - that's an impressive shelf
