    Fabulous! I’ve done this technique just a short time ago, but I have to improved it, my work didn’t came as good as yours, I need to practice more. Your artwork is really good and beautiful!!!!

  • Thanks Noel78 for you comment ;-), yes I had to practice too before I could get a better understanding of the technique. The challenge for me is to not make any big smudge you can’t erase !
