Thanks for your always welcome critics and comments

I don't know how you do it.
synthetic paper, does that mean plastic? i'm envisioning a wax paper notion, slippery almost, is it? how do you store the paintings? just nosey =)
very nice effects anyway, like stained glass without all the fuss.

Honestly, lot of it happens by itself Bodhi Peace, it is how the pigment moves and dry on the paper... It is fascinating to me!
Yes LA, you got it, Yupo is plastic, sleek and smooth, 100% polypropylene. It has no absorption whatsoever so it evaporates.
I treat them like a watercolor on reg. paper, framed with a mat but I am about to experiment with a few coats of finishing spray.
And nosey is good!

What a fascinating technique, and a lovely piece of work. Looks like leaves formed of bronze or gold on top of glass. Very nice!
