Painting With Bleach

I’m doing another Oxford Summer School week of art this year. The course I’m doing is called ‘Out of India’, led by Polly Woolstone, and is using a range of techniques to respond to design inspiration from India.

A new one on me was painting with bleach. Many types of pigment, such as ‘Quink’ ink, respond strongly to bleach and so you can use it to create patterns. We started the morning making monochrome patterns with ink and blocking in empty areas with black; later on we added further layers of design with bleach, which creates a magical golden colour in the ink.

No photos to share just yet but they will be coming!
