Maggie Grey technique




Not very exciting to look at, this is the lutradur with the papers, gesso and salt applied.




The photo shows up more of the gesso than is actually visible in reality but I am quite pleased with this result. I think next time I will use stronger colours but this does look lovely as the backing to the bookmarks.

Beautiful result, Julie, I love these Autumn colours, was that deliberate?
Your bookmarks are lovely too. What a very good idea, great little gifts for Xmas.

I love the colours of this. It's certainly very effective. The bookmarks are a good idea too! I shall take your advice re the postcards and do a few for June, though probably not too many because of the time involved in making them - I might be better of doing a bookmark extravaganza!

Hi Julie
Thank you for showing the stage before the wonderful colour was applied it helps to understand the process of the finished product. I love seeing the different stages leading to a final piece. xx

Sounds like a fun technique Julie! And I love the second photo with the color.
