This technique is so cool!! I have to try this. I have some Citrasolve so just need some National Geographic magazines ... just another item to add to my growing list of things to keep an eye out for LOL!

hi sally!
a friend of mine saw the citrosolve paper i just posted on my blog and because it tweaked her interest, she did a google search and landed on your site. what a wonderful job you did describing the whole process! I somehow missed the scans of everyone's papers on the MMCA site so seeing them was great, and especially how we love to *tweek* the process, like Jennifer Rowland did. I learned about the process initially from DJ Pettitt. I l understand Claudine Hellmuth teaches about this process in one of her classes.
I wonder what other products would work on the paper.....

here's to experimentation :-)

i learned this technique using Citrasolve in a Claudine Helmuth class several years ago. Now i'll have to get some turps too. Do you know if the scentless type works? After much playtime i found the older NG's work the best - different ink back then maybe?. Sometimes both sides of a page will turn out good and its hard to choose which side to keep. I found pages with lots of pink in them give the most fabulous results....but then, maybe i just like pink...

Our Art Gang Ohio group met today and we did "turp(Citrasolve) papers". What fun!
I got out my plastic wrap and suggested we try using that so when the ink on the pages softened up from the solvent we mushed on some plastic wrap and they turned out really kewl. Can't wait to use them in my collages. thanks for the technique info.

Pat

I tried the turp tecnique the other day and got some beautiful results. I can't find Citrasolv anywhere (Sacramento, Ca.) Just a side note.....I tried a 2001 National Geographic and it would not release it's ink whatsoever but the February '07 magazine was perfect. Anybody notice the older mags don't work?

Thanks so much for the idea....I will use some of mine for my granddaughter's altered art bird book. Beautiful colors!

Sally,

Hi there! We make Citra Solv and stumbled across your page. I realize that this is a old post...but funny thing, we had no idea that people like yourself were out there creating these beautiful pieces. We actually market Citra Solv as a natural cleaner.
Anyway, if there is any chance that you are interested, we have set up a page on our website for Artists to display their work...and add their links.
http://www.citra-solv.com/ppapc11.shtml
If you have J Pegs of your work and send them to me I would love to include yours. They are amazing!!!! Also- you are the first one that actually gave them a name. I love it! So get back to me at mzeitler@citra-solv.com. Keeping my fingers crossed that commenting to a post this old will still reach you. Melissa

Absoutely fabulous Tutorial, have emailed it to many friends! I finally was able to track down a bottle of CitraSolv was very difficult to obtain in Canada, found it in Bellingham Washington. Can't wait to try this out!

Nancy, 
Thank you so much for your nice comment. And by the way, you can do this same procedure using turpentine instead of citrasolve - thus the name, "Turp Paper." Just be sure to do it outdoors. And expect the paper to smell for months no matter which you use. Air it for as long as you can.

Thanks again for checking out my blog and thrilling me with a message to let me know you were there. Come back soon and let me know how your CitaSolve Paper works out for you.

Sally

I TRIED MAKING TURP PAPER FOR THE FIRST TIME YESTERDAY AND HAD A BLAST. I DRIED EACH PAGE AND STEAM IRONED THEM AND THE ODOR OF THE TURP WAS GONE....IT WAS GREAT FUN. ENJOY MAKING TURP PAPER !!!

You can mash on the closed book or twist it slightly to help manipulate the mingling of inks.
