Hanga "Trees"

Hanga is a Japaneese technique that utilizes water based pigments bouund in a rice flour paste to create subtle, but bold and beautiful prints. In this one I was experimenting. For my water soluable pigments I used "Sepia" water based ink, mixed with wall paper paste. Eggshell latex paint (green) mixed with the same paste, and water soluable "Ivory Black" oil paint mixed with the same. All was proofed on a very inexpensive piece of "printer paper" to see what would happen. My brush for applying the Ink was an old shaving cream brush trimmed flat. The result is crude, but I see a lot of possibilities for future prints. Jim
