Exposure: Beneath the Layers

Transfers to tengucho paper

Sun, February 22, 2015

My interpretation of the theme is sunbathing. I photographed Paulo and La Donna at Marina di Praia on the Amalfi Coast. Perfetto! The images are edited in Adobe Photoshop and printed on DASS™ film. My plan is to adhere tengucho rice paper to wooden panels using encaustic wax— one black and white pair (sort of an X-Ray) and a second pair using CMYK colors sandwiched between wax. Dana King at Crown Woodworking made the braced 20 x 40-inch wood panels which I'll seal on the front and back to prevent warping. Here I've transferred one of four sections of La Donna to tengucho paper.
