|A vague face shape|
|This one still has a vague boat shape|
I have no idea how it works or why, but it dissolves the ink to make beautiful abstract shapes..
I got my Citrasolv through Amazon.I didn't seem to be able to find it locally. It is a natural citrus cleaner which contains large amounts of concentrated orange oil.
You tube has some great tutorials..
I like the Cathy Taylor series.
Warning!!! It is a messy business, make sure you wear gloves and have plenty of newspaper to hand. The smell is pretty strong too, so don't like me do it on a freezing cold day because you really need to open all the windows. I hung out all my national geographic papers on the washing line to dry, I think the neighbours must have thought I had finally flipped. :)
|Sea and Shoreline ( Citrasolv collage)|
I used the paper as an experiment in this landscape collage. I love the sky like effects the random splodges make. All I added to this were a few faint ink lines.
