nude in liquid light by aglaia b

This image was printed using liquid light.
This is a silver-based sensitizer for applying on any surface, exposing by an enlarger, and processing in conventional chemistry. It is virtually the same emulsion found on ordinary photographic paper, but in a liquid form and can allow the emulsion to be coated on a wide range of surfaces.
Here I have applied the liquid light using a brush to scrap metal and once it was dried exposed it with the enlarger. It was then developed, fixed and washed similar to any photographic paper.
The final piece of scrap metal was then stuck onto painted pine to be displayed.
The image you see before you is then a digital photograph of the displayed piece.

    This is truly a piece of art. As any painter would brush on canvas you have truly spent time and effort in creating something unique and beautiful. The original must be truly something to look at. Amazing work.

  • wow, thank you for your wonderful comment, to be compared to a painter now that is something. LOL, no no i know what you mean, a lot of time and effort did go into producing the final piece.
    thanks again ;-)
