Sound an interesting title !
I am talking about my paper experiment - I have Maggie Grey's new book and decided to try gesso, tissue and paint. Following the instructions I used bondaweb to attach tissue to vilene, then did my layer of gesso with salt and sprayed the paper with coffee and a quick spritz of Adirondack colour wash in egg plant. It looked stunning whilst wet..... but this morning I looked again (the photos are difficult in this light - as today is a bit grim) but it looks less exciting AND the paper has come away from the vilene. Here are two pics of it today.....The really lovely thing though is the backside....... it is really lovely.... (three pics in difficult light).... now I need to decide a) which side to use, b) do I re-attach it with more bondaweb and finally the tricky question c) what next??
