The top image was started with a paper stencil of a pair of old Chinese scissors and arranged into an all over pattern and painted with watercolours. The image below was spread with a fine pumice gel medium, covered with plastic wrap and then pressed with all the examples of scissors I could find at home. When it was dry I removed the film, further drying was needed. I inked up my roller with Akua printing ink and masked the areas I didn't want printed with torn paper, and rolled them. This took ages to dry. Charcoal tinted pencils were added to the mix and finally a few watercolour washes.
