Citrasolv cleaner “melts” the clay based inks of National Geographics in the most stunning way. I keep circling back to the Citrasolv collage lesson, which has to be started outside when the weather is warm and not windy. . .like last Monday.
National Geo papers collaged on w/c paper, 10 X 11″
Are you caught, tangled , running into hidden snares everywhere? Tread carefully. Watch your step, or when you fly, land carefully. This life thing is tricky, at times sticky. It takes a lot of maneuvering to get yourself free once entangled.
So why not become the one who unties the knots, releases the locks, opens the door and gets to say “You’re free now. Go for it!”
If you want to try making these papers yourself, there are lots of how-to videos online. My favorite papers are the ones that have some picture peaking through, like the guy in blue above. And sometimes a page is so gorgeous by itself that you wish you’d painted it! You can also use the Citrasolv concentrate to wipe off spots of ink, using a stencil or a brush.
