Perhaps I haven’t chosen a good medium to work with at the beginning of the year. I work in my garage, its a bit cold. I don’t mind it being cold in a way, however working with paper mache in the cold doesn’t work well.

Thank goodness I had my daily print to make to give the layers of paper a chance to dry. I used  a home made gel plate today , with a mixture of acrylic and household paint. Printed on a piece of recycled Christmas wrapping paper.

Thanks to Vega Brennan at Linden Print Studio for the recipe for the gel plate
