I completed the purple, blue and white painting and left it to dry overnight. When I checked the liquid acrylic dots had dried much darker and the painting looked like it had measles. I contemplated changing the background but I wasn't fond of the structured look either, so in the spirit of my 30 day challenge, I decided to experiment.

The main painting is the result and I like it much more than yesterday. The raised molding paste created a barrier, so when I poured the liquied acrylic the channels mimicked cloisonne. The thumbnail shows the painting wet in warm light and the main painting was imaged in daylight when it was dry.

I'm going to coat it with a different type of varnish called GAMVAR PICTUE VARNISH which I'm told by one of my mentors, does a beautiful job of enhancing darkened acrylic colour. It would be nice to bring it back to the glowing jewel tones of the wet version.

Which version do you like best?
