I AM MAD AT MY FAMILY
Enamel on copper. Photo transfer.
Photo Transfer is a process in which you mix potassium dichromate, gum arabic and ceramic oxide and spray onto enamel surface. The image in which to be transferred is printed on a transparency film, and exposed to light. As the light passes through, the mixture adheres onto the surface of the enamel. the Enamel is then developed, and fired in a kiln to become permanent. The lines of the paper are added to the image AFTER the process is complete, making this a piece that is fired around 15-20 times.
Kids sure do say the darnedest things. This was written by one of my lovely daughters who left this note for me on the kitchen table. At our house, we have permission to feel all the feels. Good or bad. I keep the actual note hanging in dining room and point to it when I'm feeling frustrated. Great alternative to yelling at everyone.
