I have finally finished making my fairy cards so it is time to move onto something else. After seeing the pictures of hens made by potato printing in the March issue of Country Living magazine, I was inspired to have a go myself.
I cut a potato in half and cut a crescent shape out of it. I applied acrylic paint onto the potato in the colours of a chickens plumage and then pressed gently down onto paper.
I produced these images after a couple of attempts, OK, they are not fantastic pieces of art and have an amateurish cartoon-like quality about them, but the good thing is I know I can do better!!!
I need to refine the potato shape and play about with the colours too. Why not have a go? It is great fun and you don't need to be an artist to do it!
