returning to one of my favourite subjects

rock paper scissors so I was thinking about inukshuk tiny ones made from the smallest pebbles in a rock pool and HUGE ONES made from enormous slabs of granite; and then I was thinking about the LARGEST PAIR OF SCISSORS in the world - a thought which naturally lead to my thinking about the smallest pair of scissors. . . and then, settling for what one can create with a medium sized small pair: I think I've shared the art of Aoyama Hina with you before (I know I've shared Rob Ryan). . .
and now I've just discovered someone else equally as talented with a pair of scissors. . . Annie Vought
none of which has anything to do with what I've been up to this afternoon, but there you go!

Lotte Reiniger might be worth a look, too...

...so what you been doing this afternoon?

Christopher said...

erm...have you been doing?

ziGGi said...

must be very sharp tiddly little scissors ... and a steady hand!

Mel said...

How DO they do that?!

I can't even cut a straight line.....*sigh*

Dave said...

Or do they use a scalpel?

I, Like The View said...

Dave I included a photo of Aoyama using a pair of scissors. . . have you used scalpels/blades/cutting mats for art work? I think they're fine for straight lines, but can't imagine working all those curves. . .

Mel with patience and practice? and a very steady hand! I've never been a great cutter either (fabric's the worst)

ZiggZ I would have thought so too, but the pair she's using in the photo aren't that tiddly. . . which I found odd. . . my hands wobble

Christopher I'll investigate Lotte Reiniger - thank you

Whenever I see that kind of work I'm just stunned, trying to imagine doing it.
How!

I, Like The View said...

it's incredible mig, isn't it

the patience, the dexterity, the being able to complete with work without making a mistake!!!!

as you say, stunning
