184. Ink & Tray Skull
Printing Ink on Etched Polystyrene Tray (8.25in x 5.75in). I've been very jet lagged since I got back from vacation and haven't had much sleep, so today's skull is a result of my fuzzy brain. All I knew is that I wanted to work with a Polystyrene tray that came with some food yesterday (they're so hard to avoid!) and I remembered that they could be used to make rudimentary printing plates. I etched into the surface with a pencil and a metal tool and then rather than making a print I rubbed ink into the lines and wiped off the excess.
