Recycled Art ❯ Rolled Magazine Art
Hundreds and hundreds of rolled pieces magazine that makeup one beautifully colorful art piece… 16″ X 40″ -175 rows w/ an average of 6 per row…. yes, that’s approx. 1050 pieces!
I think visually,it looks great, Why not think of a way to transform it into a room partition.I think youre, onto tomething great.Well done!
Wow!! This is a beautiful piece! I can only imagine how much time was put into this project! Great Job!
Wonderful green art, recyled into something of beauty.
I love the color and texture. It would look great in almost any room. I wonder if you can post pictures of the process???
Thank you all for taking an interest in my art…
Glen I like the partition idea, (and might I add, I love what you can do with tires on your site)… I had thought at one time to make this into a mini coffee/ side table, but opted to attach brackets to simply hang as artwork.
Jamie- I made this piece close to a year ago, so once I have the chance to make another one, I will take pics of the process and attach a link :)
What do you use to glue the rolled pages together and to each other?
Hi Amy, I also do rolled paper art from magazines. I roll on a needle and glue them shut lengthwise and create little tubes. A much smaller version of what you do. I have about 3500 pieces on a 9 x 11″ canvas. I don’t have a web site but would love to converse about this art form. I’ve had a hard time finding anyone who does it!! Do you sell your pieces? Was it difficult to set up a website? Thanks for any assistance.
Hi Shelly, sorry I didn’t see your comment earlier… I too have done the needle size ( actually a paperclip ) so I know how time consuming that can be. I make mine into beads, to use for bracelets & necklaces… This was the first piece I did as hanging art. I donated it to a auction to benefit The American Cancer Society… Love to see photos of your work one day..
Oh, and Barbara.. It’s a simple craft glue…
Great work and thanks for sharing.
I too make art using rolled magazine pages. Either on their own or in combination with other materials (short lengths of bamboo work well), they are a magnificently easy medium to play, sorry! WORK with!!
I notice that your rolled pieces aren’t ‘backed’up onto any sustrate or not that shows in the pictures, how do you keep it from bending??
Thanks again for the inspiration on your site,
Where have we seen this before???
