I still find it magic when with just a couple of washes something can magically appear out of the paper. This is how it felt with the rose today. The gilt thorns were exciting to paint too. Life just feels better when you have a paintbrush in your hand.
usually I wait between glazes for the paint to dry naturally but sometimes when you want to control the wash a little more its handy to use a hairdryer.
Time to apply the final glaze on two of the frosted glass petals.
... enough for today I think. It's slowly taking shape.
