Extracted using: Blender
Thinner: EverClear Alcohol

Challenges or observations: The bright magenta color was so vibrant. Maybe I should have added more layers or exposed it for a shorter period of time. I do like the subtle pink tones.

Additional information: I love this process and the connection it has to the experimental days of photography. I teach workshops and classes and will explore this further with my students.
