Citra-Solved

I finally got around to finishing my Citra Solv experiment. Like many artists, I’ve heard about and seen examples of this technique, but had never tried it. This experiment actually started close to a year ago. I took 4 National Geographic’s and doused them very randomly with the Citra-Solv, stuck them in baggies and then set them aside. They proceeded to dry out despite being in the baggies. This week I poured some water into the baggies and let them sit for a few days (instead of almost a year! ). The pages were once again pliable and I could pull them apart. And what BEAUTY was hidden there in!!! It’s going to be very hard in some cases to decide which side of the page to use; like the examples below. YUM!
