Equipment and Art tools needed for Scanner art

What you need:


~ Access to a desktop computer or a laptop computer


~ a photo scanner which has a flat bed scanner access ( not the type of scanner where you need to feed paper through upright )


~ a cloth to clean the flat bed scanner surface during different sessions of macro photography ( even tiny speckles of dust show up in this type of macro photography so taking care of surface particles is essential ,I use a silk scarf )

Fishing line

Bamboo Cane or other long Stick

~ depending on where your flatbed scanner is located you might need a long cane to suspend the fishing line from


~ I use fine craft tweezers which allow me to postion visual elemts of design in the objects I like to scan . I scanned a palm tree leaf suspended with the fishing line and added tiny feathers with my tweezers for added creativity details
