I printed the peacock image on the top and the middle parts of the fabric and then did an overall print of a photo of rocks I had taken over the entire page. The next morning, I rinsed it to see what would happen. Well, as you can see, the untreated top third did not hold the inket inks (and I did not expect it to). The middle and bottom treated sections held the ink perfectly. So it works. They do what they say they will do. I even kind of like the overprint of the rocks over the peacock.
Next, I coated a piece of crinkled aluminum foil. This also worked and I can see the need to play around with print settings to get the optimum print. It is kind of hard to tell what the image is but I love this effect on the aluminum. If you click on the photo and look at the close up, you can see where it printed on the hills and the valleys of the crinkled foil, very cool as far as I’m concerned.
More experiments to come.
Let me know what you think and if you have done any experiments with Digital Grounds.
