    An 8x10 collodion portrait with a leitz Epis 400m f4 projection lens which is quite big and heavy.

    Like this Monsta. Was it poured onto black trophy plate?
    Cheers

    Cheers, it's on black plexiglass or acrylic. Never sure what it's called

    I think it goes by both those names as well as perspex. Either way it really suits the medium well.

    Acrylic is the material. Plexiglass is a brand. The British equivalent is Perspex.

    Just one of my many portraits but not a series to speak of. Thanks for the likes.
