Chine Colle

Gnarled printed on Somerset grey with chine colle. I overlapped a red and aqua Japanese tissue with flecks of silver and gold. Where they crossed they made a lavendar.

I used methyl celulose paste in the lab. It acted just like rice paste I've used at home. Difficult to lay flat, but not a problem to brush flat with the brush. Easy to overlay. Would like to play with different colors, maybe tissue paper.

All three are very lovely. Interesting how the colors change the 'flow' as the others commented on your b&w version. The colored ones take on a personna of their own. Kewel. Kudos!
