The idea was to try some chromatography… but, as can be seen from the two test proofs that I made, it didn’t quite work… or did it?

I like the “dispersion”, but it wasn’t quite what I was expecting. I was hoping for more of a color-spread to occur, instead of fields… but as a lot of my work involves color-fields its a very different (or alternative?) manner of alluding to hybridity.

Further thoughts

The more I look at these the more I like them. Something to be tried again, perhaps with a different solvent (as the one I used wasn’t quite the same as what the material data safety sheet for the ink says they are dissolved in).
