So I started using gun powder to burn with. I start by spreading powder all over the paper and lighting it. Then I do it again. Then I let the images ask (or sometimes scream) to be let out. Then I keep working the image like an etching, only in reverse. I love the softness that I can achieve.
And I have to let go. There is little control in the process until the details are put in. This is very similar to TD in that you make the marks the universe guides you to and you dress up what you find.
I will work out a way that the ritual of making these drawing is as sacred to me as the rituals I practice while doing touch drawing.
I do have a good life.
