What can I say, I love a good Rorschach test! If you don't know what a Rorschach is, it's a test that psychologists and psychiatrists use with some patients to examine what they are thinking about. I have Bipolar 2, and while I've never been given a Rorschach test I love the concept of these gorgeous mirror image designs.
So I've taken the Rorschach and made it into fine art. It's my way of transcending something that feels like a limitation and turning it into something beautiful. Here is how I make Rorschach animals. They are really fun to make! You can use the process to make all sorts of different designs, I'm making animals because lately I've been really into the spiritual meaning of totem animals.
