How polished are you?

I'm having fun using colored paper. Two recent efforts are of nail polish. The hardest part of this? Using paper that's not quite the color of the polish and still trying to convey the effects. I'm happy with what I've done so far, but... there's still a way to go. And I don't like this textured paper. From a distance it's not so bad, but close up, the texture conflicts with the image. And try as I might, I haven't been successful so far in smoothing it out through burnishing. But I have untextured paper at hand...

  1. I sure like what you've done but I guess you must change paper to polish the polish smoothly----I like masonite panels for this---great to cut them up in any size etc....Your idea of adding the soft texture over the background seems to be effective--pink was always my favorite toe nail polish color if it coordinated with my blouse or some such thing..
