A little more foil

Remember yesterdays piece that I wasn't very happy with,I had already used white Lutradur, gold foil and Moonshadow Mist Treasure Island Aqua, the colour of this is a walnut ink with an aqua metallic sheen,
but the nature of the lutradur meant it went through and left a very subtle colour, so I spritzed it with Colour wash spray, Eggplant, and left it over night to dry.
Below is what I discovered on the back of the fabric once it was dry, all the metallic aqua had sat on the plastic and made this wonderful surface. a happy accident, but which side will I use???


Below is a piece that started of with black Lutradur, turquoise foil and watered down silver metallic paint, this flooded through onto the plastic and after about half an hour I turned the fabric over, foil side down and let it sit until dry, the puddling on the plastic creates this wonderful effect.

Truly a happy accident. Perhaps you can make a mobile, so both sides can be seen.

I think you'll have to cut it apart so you can use both sides...
