I've added another fine layer of spray lacquer to this altered book double page spread.
|It's helped to enhance the subtle colour palette of tealy blues and browns with a touch of soft pink.|
|It's also brought the best out of the stitched, stabbed and colour-highlighted page edges.|
|Several fine layers of lacquer have created a glass-like shine!|
|In contrast these leaf pages are mat with just a touch of Treasure gold sheen. Gesso applied with a brush gives an interesting texture to the background.|
|I've used ink and stamps on the page above which is awaiting a pale wash to colour the background.|
|Bookmarks made from painted papers which have been lacquered and then laminated for durability.|
