Paper, sand and a mixture of Impasto Gel 1 and Medium 1 glue

 

I am happy with how clear the copies of the work came out. The image is very easy to see. I didn’t think about the colour of the image, there is a lot of grey space in the background, I would have preferred this to be white. However, as it is just a tester, I am fine with it. But I definitely need to change the background of the piece.

I don’t like the way the sand looks on the paper, it sits well and sticks well, but it looks messy and the cheapness of the paper ruins the effect. However, I did learn that I need to get some better applicators to put the glue on to the page because some of the really detailed bits, I struggled to do neatly and stick to the lines. I really want to do this with the sand on to metal. However, I am conscious that metal is very expensive.
