glue prints

I haven't written anything for a while… but now I am back.
In the mean time our computer got fixed, summer arrived (fortunately in the nights it is still cooling a bit down), the vegetables in the garden are growing nicely and we can already eat lettuce and radishes, I have only a short time left until giving birth and I am getting a bit nervous/ afraid, Helen is one month without diapers and it's going quite okay…
At work I had two busy weeks teaching my replacement and trying to get the work done. But My replacement learns fast and now I am many times left without work… well I will have to keep myself somehow busy until the end of the month.
Last week I tried some glue-printing with Neomi.
I saw this idea here a while ago.
The prints did turn out not too bad but somehow I imagined it different. We used Gouache and the colour dried very fast in the dry and warm air so we had to work fast. What turned out nicer were the original glue pictures with the colour.
Paint a picture with glue.

Let the finished picture dry.

Paint over the dry picture with a brush or roller. Place an empty paper on top.

That's the print we got.

And that's the original glue painting with colour.

Meanwhile Helen did her own art work....

Now with the computer fixed I hope I will also have more time again to check out all the nice blogs out there...

Liebe Rahel,
das ist ja eine tolle Idee!
Meine Kleine bastelt auch so gerne - vor allem mit dem Flüssigkkleber.
Das wäre mal ne tolle Sache, den Kleber ein bisschen gezielter ;-) einzusetzen. Danke für den Tipp!
Ganz liebe Grüße
Melanie

I think I may have to try this one with my older group, too. :) Thanks for the lovely ideas.
