Fat Quarterly Issue 7 is out now! All about colour palettes and where to find help in choosing colours for your projects.

More Snails

I decided to make the snails two different shades of each colour so I could teach Amelie that a colour can have lots of different variations. I sometimes wonder how confusing it must be when I point at things such as a navy blue car, the sky and a turquoise blue toy and say "blue".

What a great teaching "tool".

Regarding your comment on paper stenciling: I'm not sure how many prints you could make I only did 4 or 5 and the paper was still in good condition (no leakage or anything). You could use freezer paper without ironing. I've seen freezer paper used in the same way. It would stick to the ink and last longer than computer paper.
