After days and weeks of complaining about the heat and it being way too hot in Portland, The Gals suffered an event straight out of an Alanis Morissette song in the form of clouds on the day they planned to play with sun prints and record about them. Since they weren’t expecting to record about foil engraving on the late July day they recorded this, they had no research done and just had to wing it. Which means things get really off track a few times but fun was had by all.
There were examples of some cool techniques discussed in this episode but because the month of August is always a shit-show around here, The Gals just didn’t have time to get to them, but we promise to explore the ideas further and fit them into a future episode.
Pictures! Katie scrambled to get some photos for you tonight at the last minute.
This is the scratch art paper/foil engraving paper and tools The Gals used when messing around with this cool medium.
They really didn’t have a lot of time to dedicate to serious scratch art/etching but they had a lot of fun figuring out how this stuff works for you and here are the examples they referenced in the show.

P.S. Here is some Alanis Morissette for you… it is now stuck in our heads so we might as well pass it along.
