Bleaching fun

Generally, I use black pen and single line when drawing or mark making during projects. However, after reminiscing about a drawing workshop I took part in during my first year of my textile BA, I remembered how much fun using bleach and drawing ink was, and what beautiful effects you can create! Such a simple technique, but such delicate outcomes can be achieved. Here are some photographs taken of my bird and feather inspired ink and bleach drawings. Enjoy!

I also added rock salt directly onto the drawing whilst the ink was still wet. Then, once the paper was dry, I removed the salt leaving a speckled and more organic feel to the finished drawing. TaDa!
