We decided to do this technique last week in the PRC art class that I co-teach. Basically, the CitraSolv dissolves the ink on the clay-coated premium NatGeo papers, resulting in one of a kind designs that can be further processed, or used as is, for collage papers. We had to do it in the parking lot because of the fumes...but the ladies had fun and we made some beautiful papers. Here is just a small sampling from one magazine only; aren't they cool!
This first one is 8x10" uses a fish stencil from The Stencil Girl. I used it on heavy Bristol paper and collaged several other papers to make a sea scene.
The second one is 8x10 also and uses leaf stencils (I think from Crafters Workshop). I cut oak leaves from several different papers with cool patterns. To some, I added a touch of metallic copper paint. The quotation is heat embossed in black. It was serendipity that the globe in the upper right was not dissolved by the CitraSolv; it echoes the quotation beautifully!
These next two are smaller scale, and use new fish and tiger stencils that I bought from iStencils. In person, the backgrounds on these are amazing.
And finally, two more. The cityscape and reflection stencil is from the Stencil Girl; the aspen/birch trees are from The Crafters Workshop. I added a bit of glitter to the cityscape reflection.
