Mixed media madness….
… or is it just madness? I’ll be truthful here. I’m not sure about these two pieces. Yes, I did take the photos with my trusty Canon 5D MK II camera, but I wanted to try something different. I scanned ads out of some old 50’s and 60’s girlie mags, arranged them in a collage and printed them on water color paper with my ink jet printer. Next I printed one of the photos I took onto heat transfer paper (Iron On). Then ironed said photo onto the girlie ads. The goal was to create a Polaroid transfer looking image with out the cost and mess of an actual emulsion lift. Tomorrow I’m going to spray one of the prints with automotive grade Dupont Chorma clear. Will it work or will it fail, is it art or is it crap?
