Lumen Prints

In addition to fruits, vegetables, and plants, I made my first attempts to print a picture.  Unfortunately it did not work well because, as I quickly learned, you cannot use an inkjet printer with acetate.  The ink ends up puddling into small beads and leaves a funky pattern, and never really truly dries.  I still attempted prints, though, to see what would happen.  I chose a picture of my grandmother Granny and my great-grandmother Nana.  Granny's picture was pretty successful, all things considered, but Nana's wasn't simply due to the source imagery.
