More Experiments in Printing: Part Two

A couple more inkjet transfers, but this time on birch plywood rather than paper. In a nutshell, the process
involves making a transfer image on
InkAid transfer material. That image is then transferred to the wood using a solution comprised mostly of 91% isopropyl alcohol.
I modified both of these a bit rather than leaving them as straight transfer prints. Both of these images were scorched with a plumber's torch after the ink had dried (the bottom image more so than the top). I also sanded much of the bottom image away after
being scorched. The top image has a
very light coat of stain as well.
I applied a couple of coats of a paste wax to both as a finishing coat.
The original image is a few dead trees which I shot with a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flash camera with an inverted lens.
