I prefer to use a small spray bottle to add the Citrasolv on a table outside. I spray ampily on the pages with pictures once the articles start (no ads) and wait about 15-30 minutes before checking the magazine. Every time you open a page up it will stir up the ink so I try not to open it often. If the pages are done, I begin tearing them out and lay them out to dry. If parts didn't "melt", I add more Citrasolv and wait. They dry in a few hours inside, but even quicker outside if it's possible. Below is a part of the page I used before I began phase two of the manipulation.
For this piece, I decided to further manipulate the page manually. The beauty of this process is that you can begin again after a page is dry. The ink easily becomes moveable with minimal effort. I used the Citrasolv in the lid and a liner paintbrush and set out to draw some spirals. I varied their size and their orientation, blotting along the way to remove the rest of the ink. After that was complete, I used the paintbrush into the unused are of the page to wet the dark background and use that ink to make shadows in the spirals.
