Russell Young

Russell Young finally dropped by to work on his new prints. He does a lot of projects here at Axelle. These prints below are printed on linen with enamel and flocked with 'diamond dust', glass dust. Working with enamel is very challenging but since the shop has done projects like these before, everything went smoothly. This project was a introduction to using diamond dust. In order for the dust to stick to the image, the enamel has to be wet. The effect is very pretty, the dust catches light and shimmers to add a different dimension to the print.
