Adding Texture

Another experiment with some of Maggie Grey's techniques. This time I'm following her suggestion of adding soaked kozo (pounded mulberry bark) at the gesso stage. I've thrown on a bit of kosher salt to pock it up a bit more. I am also going to try using abaca paper, burlap and dry wall tape as they each offer a slightly different texture. I used a lot less gesso this time and thicker tissue paper. It's based on Timtex which is very thick though easily needled. Next time I'm going to use a lighter ground.
