More time with the Splashart machine today.

Had a go with the food colouring in the bottom glass container. To be honest I'm not happy with the result.....

...... things seem to work better with the colouring in the reservoir, which I don't like doing. I had a blocked valve last week after adding a red colour. I t seems after a while the pigments in the colour began to solidify for some reason. It took ages to clear the blockage.

19 of 52 - Part 5 - Late entry

It was impossible for me to upload this blog entry last night.... problems with the internet connection. On my way to the corner shop I noticed some more dried weeds in the final stage of decay. Picked a couple of stems and took a shot or two. Th...

19 of 52 - Part 4 - It came to light.

Kept looking at the image I took a while back for inspiration and the idea of toning things down entered my mind. As time went along one thing led to another and ended up adding a starburst overlaying one of the turbines, then an image of a cobl...

19 of 52 - Part 3 - Playing with a light.

Had a little play about with the blending in PS. Not much in the way of imagination but it is something to start with. ... if I keep going back to it, I may develop something of a idea. Early days yet......."There's always the morn"

19 of 52 - Part 2 - Lakeside Selfie

Peering out of the window at 0645 I noticed the lying frost and clear sky. Gave myself a push, got ready and donned extra clothing, threw the backpack over my shoulder then had a five minute cycle ride to the lake. It was cold, wish I'd have put a f...

19 of 52 - Part 1 - Gone to seed

I decided to pick what was left of a Hawkweed plant that was in the yard and take a shot of a couple of dried seed pods ... which is'nt very good. As there's a clear sky out there tonight I thought I would include the latest phase of the wanin...

Ah - the red colouring is a tad thick but smells lovely Smile I run a load of clean water through the valve whenever I use anything other than plain water - so far so good - fingers crossed!

The colouring was in for around two hours before things starts to happen, Going to make sure if I add colour it'll only be for a short period. I've grown rather fond of processing in mono. No doubt curiosity will see me dabbling with other colour.

I think other colours will be ok - red is definitely the worst Smile I might get the kit out again over the weekend - busy on Saturday, garage blitzing on Sunday but nothing else planned so digits crossed!
