This close up of the tray shows the multi-layered effect of the "crackle" finish. The base coat is cobalt blue. Subsequent coats of blue-green, yellow & forest green were applied, utilizing 2 different types of "crackle" media. I think the "crackle" finish draws one's eye to the green tiles, especially the Sakura "Galaxy" tiles with gold stars. The painted surfaces were sealed with 2 coats of water-based polyurethane (low VOC).
Painful Tear by Tomasz-Mro on Watercolor, acrylic and pen. This one is done in my large Moleskine Notebook. I haven't used it in a long time, so it was difficult getting used to the different type of paper that I usually use.
