Recently released was the Polaroid Po-Go Instant Mobile Printer which uses Zink Photo Paper. The (2″ x 3″) ZINK paper contains cyan, magenta, and yellow dye crystals which are heat activated to produce an image. I was curious to experiment with this new technology, but in researching the product, many people have been given this printer bad reviews.
I do not have a Pogo printer yet BUT I still went out and bought a 10 pack of paper to experiment with. Using different heat sources i was able to produce some interesting textures that might be able to be used in the future……
The paper has an adhesive backing so I stuck these images on one page in my spiral notebook so i could scan them in.
This “ZINK art” was made without the Pogo printer, just heat was used!
