Organic print cards by Aileen Stinten
Healesville resident Aileen Stinten started art classes at the age of 50 proving you're never to young to start a new project. Her illustrative skill is most readily demonstrated with her works using oil pastel. Here we have an example of her 'organic prints'. The technique involves submerging leaves and water colour paper in a mineral emulsion, rolling it up in a cylinder, tying it up for a few day after which the leaf and paper merge. It goes without saying, each print is unique. These examples for sale are mounted on folded card to allow you to write a special message. Others are mounted in a card frame for hanging and would require professional framing at an early stage to ensure longevity.
