I've used Unryu paper to cover up paint messes before. Now I am using it to cover up/add another layer to the surface I have been papering for the last three days. (I just tried to look that other paper up...I couldn't find the exact one but it is either a Japanese or Thai paper with inclusions...I will find it eventually.)
So this time it is Unryu paper in forest green doing the rescuing.
LOL -- it almost looked like I had pulled off the other paper after the first piece of Unryu was on.
This paper is very very lightweight and fiber-y. When it became wet with the matte medium (in this particular application) it became very easy to rip and also almost mushy -- so I had to be extremely aware of the pouncing of the brush when I was laying it down...but I still wanted it to conform to the dips and uneven surface...no air pockets if possible.
This is with just the first piece added.
This is when I was done (for today).
This was after I cleaned up the area and set him back on the desktop.
When he started to dry a little I knew I wanted to go back and smooth out the pounced marks.
There was also this trouble area on his left rear leg. See how the paper is almost melted and mushy?
I added a few more teensy pieces of paper and smoothed them on with just my gloved finger and matte medium -- no pouncing with the brush.
I can't wait to see how it looks tomorrow because at this moment it looks pretty good -- the forest green Unryu paper is blending back in with the original remaining paint colors.
