Stone Paper

After a couple of weeks experimenting with oil on stone paper I have come to the conclusion that my best course of action was my first thought. Thin washes of color with just a hint of wax and drying medium in the paint allow for an overnight dry and the ability to work the piece more quickly without any cracking or adverse reactions.

I do love this paper but it has a fragile quality. It can be scratched and pitted, so great care must be taken to make sure it is worked on a clean surface. Cut on a clean surface... Other than that I have not encountered any negatives, but the day is still young, so to speak.

Full sheet, stone paper 16pt. 38x28. Oil and wax wash. Dry to the touch in one day.
