These are with the blue layer on top - prolly another two to three layers to go on the tiki, dunno about the other one, but I'm warming to it 😀 The tiki image is a shade more blue than that over all, and the Yellow is stronger too, but I can't get it any … Continue reading Blue layer.
Second layer - red, over yellow, blue tomorrow - so far so good, I've winnowed down something like 12 prints to three that seem to be working (tri colour attempts like below), and another 4 paynes grey single layers that I think I'll try to build compliments on.. The grey ones seem to be exhibiting … Continue reading Second layer Gum.

I started making gum bichromate prints in 2008, I used … Continue reading Collections, Plastic Heitiki

I had these in a drawer unfixed - they were failed lumen prints, they were just waiting for me to eventually throw them away - instead I decided to see what happened when I threw thm in some developer in daylight - it seems the lumen print acts as something of a resist. The ones … Continue reading Chemigrams, I guess?
