yes-- i suppose it was unconsciously suggested by the side of the buttons\

but anyway-- again, great. love the strong lines. is it ink? on what kind of surface? oh wait you said prints yes? please tell us how you make them (other than "i apply my genius and bam")

"are people still suggesting ways to do it?" but am i am happy i looked because the art is awesome. keep up the good work sir!

is a foam board a solution to what i want to do?
if i have works on paper, on what can i glue them without ruining them, for them to be as if on canvas? i want them to have a thick surface underneath.

and/or, since i havent understood well what a foam board is, do those come with a paper surface attached, on which i can do the works originally?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foam_board
still sort of meh

Foamcore or foam boards are the same thing. I've done something similar to what you're describing above with this.


 


The surface of the board has a smooth surface ideal for drawing on it, but not so much if you intend to use it for painting. If I understood right, you want to glue a drawing/painting on the board, and then perhaps cut its shape around with a Stanley knife so the that it gains a thick layer underneath?

my love.

basically it has to do with (new) works on paper- materials i will use is charcoal, ink but also some acrylic or house paint in parts.
so it would ideal for them to have paper on one surface (costly though i assume and risky if it turns out crap).
what you describe is fine for what i want to do..

i also have these stuff that are already done on paper though -charcoal and acrylics- and i would like to glue (risky it might ruin the whole thing, no?) on the thick layer.
i mean if there was a way to glue without ruing, i would go for the new works on paper again- to avoid above risk or fearing to do crap and ruin the costly board.

i will ask art supplies stores with the english name, hope they know what i mean.

the boards themselves aren't really expensive, depending on the size you buy. they are lightweight and made of polystyrene. They are often used for matting pictures.

They don't have paper on them, if you want to draw on them you'd need to use a permanent marker.
If you want to draw straight on to something harder than paper you could try mount board.
Probably the easiest thing to do though is draw on paper and stick it to some foam board using mount spray.

You can draw with a pen on a foamboard, just not with a pencil. Or maybe depending on the quality of the pencil and how sharp it is you can use it to draw on it but it's not going to be a pleasant experience and you risk damaging the surface.

i hope you're using acid-free boards! the non-archival kind turn to brittle crap after a few years.

They also bend if you don't protect them from the heat.
