Decalcomania is a transfer technique used by some early 20th century surrealist painters to acheive spontaneous and uncontrolled art-making. This process presses black glue between two sides of a sheet of paper to create textures resembling tree branches, feathery foliage or frost patterns. Enhanced with metallic watercolor, these prints create moody, luminous landscapes.
