#2 frottage mini tutorial

Choose the tactile surfaces to do your rubbings. I chose one of my art stamps, and a clear plastic texture sheet.
Look around you and experiment rubbing differant surfaces. I also chose a photo from an old newspaper and rubbed it on the large stamp with a block of silver and blue encaustic. You can see a piece of it on the lower left hand corner. You can use crayons, candles etc. If you are going to use your rubbings for collage, you will need a substrate. I cut an old watercolor collage that had been in incubation for years into small pieces. I collaged on a 9x6 piece. Gather your collage elements and go to the #3 post.
