Blown pictures

It is very difficult to remove ink stains from textiles, which is why one has to be very careful! In this edition however, we want to encourage you to make them purposely - however on a page. Let yourself be inspired an experiment.
Alternative: Print our finished ink blotches and protect your textiles for the time being!

In the beginning there was a blotch, a blotch of ink.


This blotch was so big, that it seemed as it would never dry. We took a deep breath and blew and blew.

It grew small arms, large arms, thick and thin arms.

The arms were then connected using a Black pen. It then it became a spider web.

 

As you can see, sometimes even the easiest methods can create surprisingly good results. All ink blotches were created using Pelikan ink. To create these pictures we recommend using Pelikan's ink glasses as these make it is easier to pour the ink.

This is what you additionally require:
Many different Pelikan ink colours, Paper and a lot of wind, Pelikan coloured pencils.


A poem by Joachim Ringelnatz, two ink blotches and a lot of wind.

Ms. Millipede, to create you, the ink blotches were stamped on the paper using a cork. After this the legs were created by blowing.

A real challenge for all blowers. The letters were "drawn" using a thick Pelikan paintbrush (size 10), after which many arms were created. The colourful areas in between these were created using Pelikan's coloured pencils.

A colour page of paper acts as the background for this flower. The bloom, the stem and the leaf were drawn using Pelikan's coloured pencils.

To get used to whole process, you can also download finished patterns. The arms or other patterns can be lengthened by simply using a fountain pen. The finished areas can be coloured in using Pelikan's colouring pencils.

After experimenting with these, you should be ready to create your own ink pictures. Simply use a blotch to create a picture - just don't do it on a T-shirt or on the kitchen table.

Enjoy!
