How does an art medium transmit feelings?

Art mediums transmit feelings in a psychological or say mental way. Its the magic of color and humanity including our sense of sight and touch. Different mediums share principles of art and we can feel different mediums through different ways such as sight, touch which are the most common. These mediums have color for the sense of sight in order to convey or transmit the feelings what we call art appreciation, Texture is meant majorly touch but can also be felt with the sixth sense known as telepathy with the help of sight making the feelings more intense.

For example if a medium is Blue in color its brings a feeling of coldness and red bringing a feeling of warmth or say hot. with the right colors in the right place art mediums bring for the desired feelings by the artist towards his audience. In that way we can say Art mediums transmit feelings through our senses majorly through sight and touch which from these the medium is interpreted in an individual manner there after creating different emotions from there own make up of the medium they are exposed to. Meaning everyone interprets a medium in a different way hence different feelings transmitted.

Addition by Evelien: Goethe's color theory can make this kind of color effects comprehensible. There really is an objective side to the effects of color, form, proportions, scales etc. This is mathematics, but in a living way. like a snail growing a shell in a perfect spiral, without having to calculate it. The snail has no awareness, but the artist does in some degree.

How do you make someone cry by watching a film?

  • You can't make someone else cry in a movie or watching a DVD on TV unless those emotions are in that individual. Some people may cry over sad parts of movies or something that reminds them of sad times in their lives or even good times gone by, but many people are private with their emotions. This does not mean they feel nothing. Some people are far more sensitive and find it difficult not to cry while watching some movies.

How do elements of art and music affect us?

The Elements of Music

Sound is created when an object vibrates. These vibrations are perceived by our ears and then sent to our brain. Our brain in turn analyzes these signals and let's us know what type of sound we are hearing (i.e. an alarm clock ringing, a car horn blaring, etc.). Music is differentiated from other sounds because it has certain qualities.

When you listen to a piece of music, you'll notice that it has several different characteristics; it may be soft or loud, slow or fast, combine different instruments and have a regular rhythmic pattern. All of these are known as the "elements of music."

· Beat and Meter - In order to define meter, let's first define beats. Beats give music its regular rhythmic pattern. Beats are grouped together in a measure; the notes and rests corresponds to a certain number of beats. Meter refers to rhythmic patterns produced by grouping together strong and weak beats. Meter may be in duple (2 beats in a measure), triple (3 beats in a measure), quadruple (4 beats in a measure) and so on.

· Dynamics - Dynamics are abbreviations or symbols used to signify the degree of loudness or softness of a piece of music. It also indicates whether there is a change in volume.

· Harmony - In general, harmony refers to the combination of notes (or chords) played together and the relationship between a series of chords. But to give you a better understanding of harmony, let's first define melody. Melody refers to the tune of a song or piece of music. It is created by playing a series of notes one after another. Harmony accompanies and supports the melody. It is created by playing a group of notes (either simultaneously or as broken chords) behind the melody thus giving it musical texture.

· Key - Also known as tonality; a principle in music composition wherein at the end of the piece there is a feeling of completion by going back to the tonic. The tonic (main key or home key) is the principal pitch of a composition. Simply put, key refers to the central note (i.e. key of C), scale (i.e. C scale) and chord (i.e. C Major triad)

· Melody - It refers to the tune of a song or piece of music. it is the memorable tune created by playing a succession or series of pitches.

· Musical Instruments and Voice - Musical instruments are classified as percussion, strings,woodwinds, brass and keyboards. Another method of classifying musical instruments according to the type of vibrating material used to produce sound is called the Sachs-Hornbostel System. Our voice is also considered a musical instrument. Each of us has a different voice type or vocal range and no two voices are alike.

· Music Notation - Refers to the symbols used to represent music when writing it down. These symbols specify the pitch, rhythm and meter of a piece of music.

· Pitch - The relative lowness or highness that we hear in a sound. The pitch of a sound is based on the frequency of vibration and the size of the vibrating object. The slower the vibration and the bigger the vibrating object, the lower the pitch; the faster the vibration and the smaller the vibrating object, the higher the pitch. For example, the pitch of a double bass is lower than that of the violin because the double bass has longer strings. Pitch may be definite (i.e. piano) or indefinite (i.e. cymbals).

· Rhythm - It may be defined as the pattern or placement of sounds in time and beats in music. Roger Kamien in his book Music: An Appreciation defines rhythm as "the particular arrangement of note lengths in a piece of music." Rhythm is shaped by meter; it has certain elements such as beat and tempo.

· Tempo - The Italian word at the beginning of a music piece that indicates how slow or fast the piece should be played. This is called the tempo which is effective throughout the duration of the music unless the composer indicates otherwise.

· Texture - Musical texture refers to the number of layers as well as the type of layers used in a composition and how these layers are related. Texture may be monophonic (single melodic line), polyphonic (two or more melodic lines) and homophonic (a main melody accompanied by chords).

· Timbre - Also known as tone color; it refers to the quality of sound that distinguishes one voice or instrument from another. Timbre may range anywhere from dull to lush, from dark to bright (such as the sound of glockenspiels).

Can you cast resin or epoxy in a Plaster of Paris mold?

Yes, but the method for making sure the material separates from the plaster mould is quite involved. Some mould makers use shellac, followed by a soap treatment. There are several steps to the process, and you will probably have to destroy the mould as you break the positive out. For detailed steps on how to do this, research "plaster waste moulds"

These art forms may use any number of media ranging from metal, paint, paper, and prints, to fabric and found objects. Generally the subject itself is subordinate to the materials that form the piece, as they are intended to suggest an intangible emotion or idea. However, this is not always the case.

How do you mix gum Arabic solution for lithography from powdered gum Arabic?

Long answer:

Get 400 grams of gum Arabic powder and dissolve it into a liter of water. Put your hydrometer into the gum solution and add more water until it reaches 14 degrees Baume. You then have to add about half an ounce of Listerine as a preservative. Make sure it's the regular old yellow Listerine, not mint or some other brand of mouthwash.

Real answer:

Why bother? Most of us buy it premade.

Is a printers proof more valuable than an artist proof?

Speaker as an ex-printmaker and lithograph/intaglio printer from many years ago... a printer's proof is the first one that comes off the press that meets the artist's approval for saturation, tonality, density, evenness of printing, etc.

This is held as the printer's proof by the printer (who is customarily not the artist) and is used as a benchmark for printing the edition. All prints must meet the level of quality of the printer's proof. Those that don't are scrapped, and printing continues until the edition is filled... plus a few extra for artist's proofs, personal gifts, etc.

The printer gets to keep the printer's proof, and the artist usually signs it. I got a bunch of them.

In France, the printer's proofs were marked "bon a tirer", which basically means "good to pull".

When I was going to school in Italy, us American students took a fancy to inscribing our printer's proofs with "prova di stampa", which was the customary designation for printer's proofs (if you were Italian).

Buy it because you like it not to make money on it because you will probably won't. Own about 100 all signed by the artist, lower the production number the better. Paid an average of $10 per print and they list between $300- $1200 each.

What is an intaglio plate?

An intaglio plate, more commonly referred to as an etching plate in the United States, is a metal plate (usually zinc or copper) which has been coated with a resistant substance, draw upon with a sharp stylus (breaking through the coating), and then etched in acid to create lines within the plate. Ink is then forced into the grooves within the plate; under pressure the plate will release the ink unto dampened paper, creating an "etching" or "intaglio" print. Side note - roughly translated, "intaglio" is Italian for "within the surface."

What is a restrike etching?

When an etching has been made, prints are made from the metal block. Very often these are not numbered. However, for collectors' items there is often a fixed number, say 200, and the individual copies are numbered, very often in the form 1/200, and so forth. Sometimes the block is then destroyed and cannot be used again. Sometimes, however, the block is kept and used again. If this happens there should be a clear indication that the 'print run' is that of a re-use or to use the technical term, a re-strike. One common way of doing this is to use Roman numerals for the re-strike. The whole area can sometimes be problematical. There are analogies with vintage photographs. I hope that this helps.

Joncey It had always meant the addition of another image at the foot of the image, in the margin. Such as a printers logo or added art work . Some thing that the one doing it thinks will add value. Usually done on another plate or stamp then applied to the finished print. Thus striking the print again. JD

A 'restrike' normally refers to an impression taken from the original etching plate, but not with the permission of the artist. It is normally taken posthumously and not necessarily as part of an edition. Chris

What is a line-scale and what does it look like?

A line scale is a long line with regularly interval numbers. They are usually used on maps to show distance. They can have different scales (km, cm, in) and compare distances. For example, if you have a map of Canada in a textbook, a line scale in the bottom mights show that every five cm on a page represents 700km on the map.
