Aplying Medium to melinex. The test is underway, however the medium is taking time to dry onto the melinex film surface, prior to drawing. It has been three weeks in natural conditions and may require application of external heating.
The medium was left to dry for four months during 2021 lockdown, but it was still very tacky and not a surface to draw or mark make on with confidence. Further heating with a hair drier and two sessions in a silkscreen drier did not harden the medium. However the medium’s tackiness was put to a use. A trial dropping of willow charcoal dust was made by stretching scrim over the jar and tapping it over the sheet.
a test exposure was made a eleven light units and tinted to assess the effectiveness of the dust spread and occlusion of light.
