Created for the Disintegration Collaboration Group Project

(Actual size: approx 18″ × 12″)
Collage of book pages, hand-made paper, old newspaper, cardboard, tracing paper, labels – mounted on board, with fabric, string, metal objects, wire, ink wash/splatters, clear gesso painted on parts (as recommended by Janis) and small amounts of copper sulphate crystals, iron filings and zinc oxide that I found when I re-discovered my childhood chemistry set in the garage! – Might add some more as I go along if nothing happens!
It is sunny here in England, but may rain soon as the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament is underway!

    This is great! loads of different materials..indeed Wimbledon always signals rain! but alas they are forecasting high temps for the weekend Simone!

  • Thanks – perhaps I should take this piece to the beach and dip it in the sea!
