Testing, Testing.

 Using a piece of the mud painted paper that was a bit too messy for the final project, I started testing out stamps and colours. I thought that I'd use a pale colour as a sort of ghost print behind the darker one, but when I coated the paper in Gel Medium to seal the colour on, the pale image disappeared.
      This red isn't quite what I had in mind, I thought that it might be more of a terracotta colour.
The ghost print is a bit more visible here, but everything is a bit too bland. Still, I have a month or so before the final project has to be finished, so all this testing is a learning experience. Now to make some more mud pages!
