Time for Tea

Time for Tea
Watercolor batik on masa, 8x6
purchase here
Every week, I serve a different special tea in these teacups to the girls in painting class.  Quite some time ago, I bought a whole roll of masa paper for the watercolor batik technique.  This paper is thicker than the previous one I had used - and I found it harder to work with.  I prefer the thinnest rice papers, because they so readily accept the paint, wax and second coat of paint.  The masa is more resistant, especially in the second flow of paint over wax.  I am finding ways to make these thicker papers work, it just takes a little practice.  Painting number 1027 in 1027 days.
