What was going to be a diptych ended up as a single emulsion lift, as I was not happy with the first of the two prints after it dried. There are so many places to easily fail when making emulsion lifts that I would enourage anyone who is interested to first scan your Polaroid print and save it, as once you perform the surgery to remove the paper thin emulsion, there is no going back. There are many tutorials on the web, including a good one by the Impossible Project. My fine motor skills in my right hand have improved very slowly since my fall in February and fortunately are slowly improving to the point I can now lightly position a jellyfish like wiggling emulsion onto watercolor paper and work quite some time to position it with a wet watercolor brush and a blade. Diptychs and Triptychs are the most challenging, as you must line up the edges of the emulsions without disturbing the ones you have already finished. Have a good Saturday (Sunday too for that matter :-) Headed to the bedroom to read and stay in the air conditioning. Very hot and humid weather for the Northwoods.
