Fun with Scanners

I was bored today and decided to have some fun with the scanner. There was no paint used in the creation of this picture. The paint is a time stretched image of the paintbrush head. Here's the formula.

1) hold a paintbrush to the glass of a scanner
2) start the scanner and let it roll over your hand.
3) When it gets to the tip of the brush, follow the scannining imager keeping the brush over the light.
4) move the brush from side to side a couple of times to make it look more painterly.

Remember that the image is scanned in reverse of what you'd expect a brush to do.

That's it.
