Rainy day - good for R & D

Another slushy day outside - a little snow and lots of wet rain means it's a good day for R & D (research & development). A nice hot cup of coffee and lots of articles on textile manipulation and printing techniques to go through. It looks like monoprinting with acrylics & acrylic medium on glass is the next technique to try. I need to make a granite fabric for a piece/project for which I've already digitally manipulated an image. I'm thinking a sea sponge for a nice mottled effect using the stone colors in layers. The granite had mica as well so that addition on the top layer will be fun as well. Will post photos as soon as I get everything set up next week some night.
