Polaroid Manipulations

Polaroid manipulation is the technique in which the artist alters the photographic emulsion before it hardens. Polaroid manipulation sparked my interest as it was reminiscent of my tole painting days, where I painted flowers on found wood and other objects. Working with my hands has always been very therapeutic.
