Sharpie and Rubbing Alcohol, Pillow CasesPosted: August 9, 2012 | Author: Jena | Filed under: Artsy Fartsy, Drawing, Experimentation, Imagination, Jena's work, Small Motor Skill | Leave a comment »
Friend H is at camp when we have our library crafternoon, so I bring home some supplies that will allow her to have a chance with the sharpies, rubbing alcohol and pillow case.
I give her a little demo, I show her SunScholar’s version of the project and we set to work, her and I. I wanted to make one too. Friend A wants to join in, so I he joins me at my pillow case. The pillow case that he worked on at the library is at his home.
I do a little bit of directing this time because I want my pillow case to look a certain way. Friend A helps me make dots in circular patterns all over the pillow case. He makes lines of dots all over the fabric, saying that he’s making a map of the London subway system, the Underground. I can see the picture of a subway map in front of me, full of different colored dots and I understand his vision and go along with it.
The kids also sharpie some t-shirts. Friend A discovers that when you try to draw a straight line on material, it will make dash marks.
I add rubbing alcohol later with Little J and K and the colors blend and slowly explode on the fabric. It’s pretty awesome.
