The Week In-Between

 

Hello! 

WonderWorks has been busy this week! 

We have been working hard to replace the inventory pieces that we sold at the last show and the pieces that have been ordered from the online store since our next show is coming up quick!

Our first resin-coated piece of Top Sail Pier sold so last week! So, this week we made another!



 

Something else that we find extremely exciting is the result of our first experiment with face-mounting onto acrylic! 

This is Wormsloe printed on metallic paper. Isn't is breathtaking? The acrylic, much like our resin-coated pieces, pulls out all of the wonderful colors and amplifies them!

 

We also have begun to shoot and process our own color film right here in the studio! 

A few weeks ago, we showed you the process of developing black-and-white film. Now we bring you an inside look at color film development! 

Instead of a utility sink which we use for black-and-white film, we need a bathtub to be able to develop color film. There are three chemicals that must be used with color film: Developer, Blix and Stabilizer. Using specific water temperatures and specific times for each chemical, we can develop color film. 

The color development process is much more sensitive to temperature. Different water temperatures must be used at different points in the process so we use a bathtub to help regulate the water temperature.  

Voila! Developed color film comes out a overall orange color, but they are beautiful when scanned into the computer! 

Thank you so much for joining us every week to see what happens inside the studio! 

 

Be sure to clear your schedules for the weekend of September 5-7 and come see us at Marietta Art in the Park!
