Kemtex Sponsorship

I recently emailed companies to ask for sponsorships to help me throughout my Final Major Project. I am extremely pleased that Kemtex have offered to help me. I am currently writing a list of dyes and equipment I need and will show you the outcomes when these are delivered and sampled in my work.

I'm constantly using their products and found some lovely colours that link in nicely with my project. I cant wait to test them out. Also if your like me and use bleach to get rid of dip dyed hands invest in Kemtex Reduran Hand Cleaner. It is the better thing ever!! No more irritated, sore hands.

Happy New Year!

Where will I be this time next year?

Over the holidays I have been busy with my Dissertation.
I'm now back at uni where the late nights and injections of red bull are in full swing. I wanted my Final Major Project to be bright and noticeable. Over Christmas I had a go at dying the backgrounds of my drawing sheets with inks (which is difficult living at home with cream carpets.) I didn't get the effect I desired so back in the studio I watered down procion and reactive dyes in the dye lab and took to the floor. BRIGHT! 

Studio - Procion dyed backgrounds

               Scientific - Pollen samples

I invested in a microscope to look at molecules in detail. I've tested with pollen and sap from flowers which gave me some fantastic results. I am going to look at animal furs and cells from plants.

Bay - My home for the next 5 months

I will upload more images of my drawings soon. I post any new blog information on my twitter account. Follow me to keep updated with my progress. @Jen03Robinson
