I have recently learned how to print onto tissue paper and I am excited about incorporating this media into my paintings.
I covered a wood mount with shades of blue/purple. When that was dry, I used acrylic medium to mount a tissue printed with butterflies. I then added the tissue print of the young woman's face. I didn't like the bleed through of the butterflies on her face, so I tried painting over the tissue.
I am not pleased with this outcome. If I were to do this again I would determine where the face would lie and paint over the under printing so that the face maintained it's subtle markings. Live and learn.
