Bad Candies

30 x 11.5 inches

A blown-up version of a fairly lo-res Halloween selfie by Chloe. Costume follows theme of “bad candy.”

The experiment was to see how silk and Japanese paper worked out when printed on laser and ink-jet printers. (Both materials were backed with mounting paper before printing.) Result—ink-jet for silk, and laser for paper gives best results.

In both cases, mounting is thin silk crepe. Finials are lacquered plastic.
