With these series of flags I am working w/ Peruvian mineral paints I brought home from the Pisac market in the Sacred Valley. The paper is 140lb watercolor paper from a roll and sheets of Canson printing paper.  I brush the blank paper w/ h2o then sprinkle on the mineral powder and use a squirt bottle to spray the pigments and paper w/ a mixture of Dr. Bronner’s mint soap. Then I use a monoprint-inspired technique by laying another damp sheet on top and rolling a wooden dowel back and forth over the stack. I add and remove strips of painters tape throughout the process as well as a bit of acrylic paint here and there. I also favored a variety of metal scraping tools over brushes to add texture.
