Styx Pieces Of Eight 1978
These are 'R' Type prints from transparency. There is actually another woman on the left of the image but I left her off. The base print of the background was mounted onto double weight mount board. The prints of the women were half cut through with a razor blade and the back peeled away and then sanded to make the edge as thin as possible. The woman in the blue top was stuck in position first, the woman in the white top was taped loosely in position . With a razor blade I carefully cut the blue top woman to the shape of the white top woman and discarded the pieces. The woman in the white top was glued with Columbia Cement in position. The woman in the black top was then taped in position and the woman in the white top was cut to the shape of the woman in the black top. Then the black top woman glued in position. General spotting of the prints overall and the white of the eye brightened and cleaned.
