Book Study - Shinning Stones

This week in the ongoing study of Julia Andrus' book "Paper Transformed" in the NGS group, we're studying the section "Shinning Stones". I had fun with this a while ago.
First liberally apply dye ink to glossy paper. You can use a brayer or directly rub the pad on the glossy paper.
Then mist the inked paper with water.
Then use a small brush to make wavy stripes over the surface with a creamy paste of Perfect Pearls and water.
Then re mist the paper and use a crumpled paper towel to gently dab and twist, creating patterns with the Perfect Pearls. Allow to dry.
I think I had too much water in my Perfect Pearls paste, but I like how this piece turned out.
I also did one with a lighter colored rainbow pad and made a thicker paste of the gold Perfect Pearls and water.
