Just recently I’ve borrowed a flatbed scanner. This is another tool that allows me to again “delve into history to find something new”.
Years ago when I was discovering I could do arty things on paper, one of the first techniques were simple crayon rubbings over textured surfaces. Eventually it evolved into rubbings over cut-out shapes.
This one was a cardboard cutout of a fish. The original rubbings were just in black. Now armed with the right equipment, this simple fish remains fodder for future manipulation.
