Versailles is another design from Rainbow Gallery. I was trying to go more monochromatic here, while still using my "Las Vegas Colors". I used Watercolors, Kreinik, Fyre Werks and floss & pearl cotton. It turned out pretty and I decided to put it on a box top and give it to friends for a wedding gift. I put a piece of copper sheeting behind the piece and it sparkles through really nice. I don't know what the copper stuff is! I got it in a craft store. It is not paper, it is like a very thin piece of metal, cut with scissors and flexible. The bride & groom loved it!

That may be the stuff from the early 70's called "foil art." It was thicker than plain foil, but thin enough to mash down over plaster forms.
