have you ever tried printing with polystyrene? it's a really fast and gratifying way of getting an idea printed up - i sat for a happy hour last night scrawling into the polystyrene with a sharp pencil, then this morning printed them up. i need to experiment more with paper as it seems to work better on smooth paper than on a heavy texture, i'm wondering whether to try the archival printing paper next as it's really smooth. the above is a on a lightly textured water colour paper, but there's still quite alot of detail lost. but that's what experimenting is all about, right?
