    Hey John. This is beautiful! I love the process. Really Really love photocopiers. :) It’s come up tops!

  • oh thank you! Yes me too – I love photocopiers. I used to have an old one, it gasped and died very quickly, but I dream of getting another one day.

    do you remember the old Gestetner printers (circa 70’s)? They smelt amazing and were in schools? hmmm. printing fumes. yummy. :)

  • oh yeah! I loved that smell – and the colour! That would be a fantastic printer to play with! Thanks for reviving the memory of them – just picturing the pages of print I can smell them!

  • Thanks Shylie – I love colouring in too. If only all art were so easy and so much fun.
