Man, I used to practically LIVE in a darkroom, and I did a bunch of wierd stuff to photos, but I never thought of bleaching them....Guess I know what I'm doing tonight, eh? That's way cool.

This is crazy fantastic. Who would'a thunk you could bleach photos? How'd you think of it? (I have this image in my head of someone waking up one morning and thinking: Yes! I will dunk a photo in a 50% bleach solution!)

You rock.

Actually, I discovered it through a book called "The Complete Guide to Altered Imagery".   Here it is at amazon.com

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1592531776/qid=1139280385/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/102-2595697-3728125?s=books&v=glance&n=283155

It also has a whole lot of other really great ideas.  I haven't tried them all yet, because I got so hooked on bleaching.

What a fantastic idea. I have a bunch of photo's that didn't exactly turn out right, but being a pack rat kept them anyway because....I'll figure something out.... Grin Now I have something to do with them.

Your site is great. I love your stuff.

So do you decoupage, glue, etc. the photos onto your surface? I was wondering if the photo was too thick.

i just used a thin layer of tacky glue for the photo and the metal decorations, but I put a layer of glossy stuff on over it all as well.  you know, for shine.
