Paper lithography

litho demo
It's magic...that's the only way to describe how you can take a laser photo copy and turn it into a colored design element. There are some steps involved and some chemicals but basically you just need patience, luck, and experience.  that I intend to get this week as I practice these steps.....and learn how to use just the right amount of gum arabic, water, ink, and setswell. I'll be posting my attempts to put Rum Tum's eyes on a wild and crazy self portrait. Always wanted cat eyes and now I can have them!

The ideas just keep coming...it's just incredible what you can do with this when added to the monotypes and dry point etching we have been doing. I just can't wait to see what I'll create next!!!!

Keep checking in....it is going to get stranger and strangest!!
