Recycle and Reuse
Two ATC Gelatin Leaf Prints overlaid with black and silver technical pen drawings. Some gelatin prints need finishing, and these where from my September batch of leaf prints on card stock. I have a stack that I really love, but they just don’t seem complete, so I am selecting a few for further renditions into ATC format. I have a clear plastic template that I slide over the A4 print until I find a composition I like, pencil in the outline and repeat the hunt until there are no more good pieces left. (seems like 5 ATC’s per page is the average), then I put the results into my pile of blank ATC’s, where they can be finished with inks and pencils. With exceptions, they turned out better than I expected, and I think I will make ‘rendering’ select unfinished gelatine prints a habit. Sometimes ‘recycling’ uncovers new avenues.
