Anna Ostanina’s Gumoil Printing Process #celebratephotography
This method is entrancing and the end result is stunning. From PhoGoTraphy:
We spoke with Anna about the alternative photographic process used in the video and she was happy to give us an explanation.
Gumoil or Gumoil printing – it’s a method for producing photos with gum, chromium salts and oil paints. It’s a painstaking but very expressive photographic method that combines unique authoring and spark picture with documentary photography. Through the use of materials for art works – cotton paper and oil paints, archival photos have unique properties that are comparable to paintings on canvas. Nevertheless, Gumoil print is 100% a photographic process. To obtain an image I do not use any additional chemicals or chemical elements other than the above. I do not chlorine bleach pattern. All that is necessary for a successful work is quality paper and oil colors, properly selected chemical composition and faithful exposition.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
