For this set, another slight change to the process, to see if it can be improved.
Firstly, a slightly smaller bath… and secondly, a a bit more ink… these two combined should, in theory, result in more ink being “captured”.
Secondly, double-“capturing” (as previously tried in m4). The idea is to “capture” one colored ink on one half of the paper… wait for it to dry… then “capture” a different ink on the other half of the paper. In theory, by using yellow and blue, where the two inks overlap they should mix and produce green. Repeating this technique again to see if it can be reproduced.
I’m calling this Marbling Set 8. Its too long. I feel the need for minimalism. m8 would be better.
Out of 30 “captures” that were made, an initial look at the result, and perhaps 5 or 6 are what I was aiming for. I can’t really evaluate them until everything had fully dried… the saturation does change, and there is also the potential for movement as the paper is extremely wet (and even moving them from my working zone to the drying zone is enough to result in changes).
But, there are a couple that are already showing promise.comments powered by Disqus
