ok, so i wanted some vintage rorschach inkblot tests, but all the ones i found were too expensive or the seller was totally useless and wouldn't respond to my question of how big they were. so i decided to take matters into my own hands and make some of my own. how hard could it be?
here's what you'll need:
-ink or watered down black acrylic paint
-eye dropper and/or paintbrush
-cardstock or heavy weight water colour paper
-books or a bunch of heavy magazines
-paper to cover your work surface
step 1. cover your work surface and fold your paper in half. i find folding it in half first makes it less messy after you've covered your page in ink.
step 2. randomly drip ink onto half the page (it doesn't really matter if you get it on the other side, because it will be folded in half anyway. you can even use your paint brush to create random shapes, just make sure there is enough ink for the shape to transfer to the other side when you fold it in half.
step 3. fold the paper back in half and press down with heavy books or magazines. shed a tear because you will never own those fabulous stella mccartney wedge shoes.
step 4. after a few minutes of holding down the books/magazines, open up the sheet and let it dry. that's it!
