Finishing Touches

I have left this part of the process until last for a reason. When I used this fabulous sheer voile with gold and silver flecks on my experimental pieces, I added it before creating the circles and found that, as it is more of a fabric than paper, it soaked up the paint more, giving a more intense colour when rubbed over with the sponge, and the overall effect was more uneven than I wanted. So for this piece I left it as the last addition. It is so sheer that the colours and images still show through, but the flecks add detail and interest to the larger areas of the dove and large jar, sparkling when the lights catch them.
