Oil on water

By cattyal  
Prompted by seeing a few of these popping up elsewhere - apparently the technique is in one of the monthly mags - I thought I'd have a quick play this evening. It's a winter entertainment - along with water drops and smoke pics.....

Not brilliant but pretty colours and it amused me.

Note: It is a good idea to make sure the dish you use is completely free from dust and stuff - the teacloth I used to dry it with was a bit fluffy Smile

Thanks everyone and a special thanks to Barbara for your Award - much appreciated Smile

The first one had a sheet of holographic type card underneath - the other two had a cd.

Ah - PP mag - I don't buy many mags but might take a look at it. I'll certainly be buying a couple or more copies of next months though.......

That's not oil, silly. #1 is Neptune, #2 is Saturn's moon Mimas and #3 is Jupiter, though shooting it through a red filter has decreased the contrast of the brown and white bands. Tongue
