We started off by writing letters in black on different white papers and white on various black papers. We used pencils, pens, crayons, pastels and charcoal. Fhant experimented with different fonts and I did some Japanese hiragana and kanji, as well as some writing exercises from when I was child.
After we cut everything the way we wanted it, we made a composition on a 24x30 canvas. We mixed some different grey tones with acrylic and painted the background. Then we pasted some parts on it we wanted to include. I had read that acrylic paint was a natural glue so I thought we didn't have to use any additional glue. But we had to, so I am not sure how this technique works yet. And this is the end result:
I really liked working on this together and I loved that Fhant was happy with the result. He gets to keep the painting after I have taken it to school.
