Re: Pay it forward

I thought I'd take advantage of the bank holiday Monday to finally put together the prints for the 'Pay it forward' books I had planned. I had printed the images arround the begining of April so I had envisaged a quiet few hours sewing, folding and binding.
No such luck. I'd been experimenting with Akua-Kolor inks on various transparent papers. These are soy based inks that dry by absorption not evaporation. Some of the tissues I'd used obviously weren't absorbent enough! Next time I'll experiment (and read the product info more thoroughly) before trying to edition. Even if it is only a set of five.
So for 'Pay it forward' I'm trying a new idea and technique. One that won't involve drying time! (Pictures to follow when it goes in the post)
