Got very lucky with this one as nearly all the dyes were transferred onto the blotting paper. The blotting paper used has a very rough texture and because the skin tones and corset are quite light you can really see the texture of the paper used.

This image was shot on transparency film and the transparency was manipulated further using a Daylab printer and Polaroid pull apart film where the film is pulled apart before a positive can be processed. The dyes remaining on the Polaroid film were then transferred by rolling onto blotting paper. This is a very unique technique as you will never be able to reproduce the same image twice. There will always be a different amount of dye remaining on the film each time you do it making each image different from the last.

More works created using this technique can be found here

An emulsion lift off was also created of this image and can be found here
