Polaroid Art - Photo Maniputlations

Several years ago I was introduced to the art form of Polaroid manipulations. I took the following pictures with an old Polaroid SX-70 camera. Once the picture comes out of the camera, a tool is used to rub the emulsion around which crates a "painterly" effect.

Which one do you like the best?

70 Yellow Rose

69 Yellow Rose

59 Red Rose

56 Pink Rose

44 Pink rose

These really are Polaroid pictures and not paintings. Unfortunately this has become a lost art since Polaroid has discontinued the film for the SX-70.

My favorite one is the last one.
