“Dad’s Spirit” by Roxanne Lasky
Parts used: Root
Exposure time: 25 hours over several days
Month, season and year: January, Winter 2022
Substrate: watercolor paper, 300 gsm
Contrast of final print: * (Low)
Amount: 4 tablespoons
Extracted using: Cooking
Thinner: Distilled water
Used to create image: Ink-jet-printed positive on acetate (was not black and white). The positive was from other photo experiments and will focus on high contrast transparencies.
Challenges or observations: This was an early test for me. Dye is more dilute than flower petal emulsions. Should have strained the liquor better to avoid graininess. Longer process in winter sun. Still think the results were ok, but will add more layers of color in future.
Experiments are never a waste of time.
