I made two Constellation Charts for a friend of mine. They’re all the constellations that can be seen in the night sky, in Canada, in June and October.
I used the Sumi-e ink on the 6×8″ pieces of Etchu Hagaki for the background. Using a Metallic Silver Sharpie I drew the oval and the Roman Numerals. The holes were created using an awl as well as the Martha Stewart Screw Punch for the larger ones. I then connected the dots with a pencil.
I liked the subtle look of the pencil on the black ink. You get a different experience close-up and far away. I used floating frames to really let the light shine through the holes.
