Here is my attempt at using Citrasolv to alter magazine pages. I found this method in the latest issue of Cloth, Paper Scissors and decided to give it a try. It's quite smelly... the orange cleaner is pretty strong. I didn't find that offensive, but certainly my studio will be
orange smelling all day, if not for longer! It's all natural: says it's made from a clear liquid peel of the orange and also an essential oil blend
and biodegradeable cleaning agents derived from coconuts. hmmmmm.

It is messy, so be prepared to have stack of newspapers handy. Also it will wreck your manicure, but as an artist I never have manicures...

another note: be sure the pages don't touch as they dry.. because it will dry stuck. I did find the pages would dry on newspaper which eliminated the runs I got when I hung the papers on the clothesline.

fun morning! Next will do some art and show the results in a week or so.
