Burn Burn

Today i shall be drawing with FIRE, ahem yes the 1st attempt didn't not end well =/

At 1st i tried to bur patterns into paper and it just rose in flames or left big brown blotches it was very inconsistent so i decided to draw on the paper 1st with water and then burn into it this
seemed to work leaving a white crumpled image surrounded in scorch marks.

I then thought hay what's flammable! and so painted with a bit of white spirit and tried to set it along to burn a nice neat pattern, but this wasn't so simple as the fumes evaporated before i could get a flame on them, but it did leave some awesome dirty fume marks on the revers side.

thinking up lodes of ways i could do cool things i tried wetting patterns on the paper then cooking them in the oven but this didn't brown them just died out the paper and made it very hot -_-*

I then burnt leopard spots into paper but ended up just being erm holes and well burning my fingers servile times in the proses. So i thought about layering, dug out some fabric and places some albino snake skin underneath. Kinda reminds me of the burns on the back were the blisters are all peeling off leaving the raw skin underneath.

I then though ooo skin and started burning the snake skin melting holes in it, shriveling and hardening the texture of it i think worked really really well and creates a gre
at texture. almost like burning into human skin ( if it didn't blister and peel of corse).

And to conclude my finger now smell of gas.
