So this is a little off the beaten path for me, a tangible bit of weirdness in the turquoise altered book. I'm calling this "Mysteries Hidden" and the subtitle will be "First Person Singular" because... well, why not? These pages started with an experiment where I wanted to compare gel medium {left} and fiber paste {right}, so I pressed each through a screen and let dry. Gel medium is more smooth when dry, yet holds texture. Fiber paste feels like sand inside toothpaste, sort of, and dries rough like cement yet holds texture even better.
