Several years ago I saw the Polaroid Pogo. I wanted it then, but there wasn’t much reason for me to invest into a little printer that was 100+. But, lately I’ve been searching for something new and fun to play with. I ran into the Pogo Manipulation video and I was hooked! So, yes I bought the little printer. Being that it’s been several years since the initial release the price has gone down quite a bit. The little printer cost me only $40 from Amazon.
At first printing didn’t come as easy as it should. I have a Droid Razr, but it didn’t recognize the printer at first. My mistake, I didn’t let it fully charge. Then you have to click the power button and make sure both lights are green. The Droid should at that point recognize the printer. Then from there it was like magic. A small tiny print in hand.
Manipulation Experiment No. 1
I took the original photo and decided to try my hand at the roughed up paper with acetone manipulation first. I did similar to the video, I roughed up the paper with sandpaper. Then I took a cotton ball with acetone and went over the paper. I roughed it up some more and did a second coat of acetone. And these are my results….
I like the results. On to more manipulations!
