In the midst of my final year project,a designer shared with me his experience of encountering mistakes during his design process. He left his emulsion in a container, leaving it to expose to sunlight for a year. Just when he wanted to silkscreen his artwork, he realized the emulsion hardens and has become a rubbery texture that
could easily be peel off. It then strikes me with an idea of creating a poster by using this technique. I tried mixing emulsion with acrylic giving a thick and coated surface. Lino was used for the type as i wanted the quotes to be protruding out. I did not think so far ahead on whether this will work. I just went on experimenting and DO IT as
soon as i get my materials. 

The outcome wasn't perfect at all, it has all kinds of flaws and stains. However, this was actually one of my favorite poster among the rest. It was all about the process, the fun part in experimenting and getting inspired from someone's else mistakes. At first, i was worried over the imperfection of this poster until the visitors at The LASALLE Show told me that they really appreciate this piece of work. After all, imperfection can be perfect too right? They are what makes you perfect.
