Journal cover

This is a journal cover i made using a piece of copper that i textured with a hammeer then I covered it in alleens clear tacky glue and added a few drops of AI added the image and then let it dry overnight . then i added another layer of the glue over the whole thing making sure the image is covered I dropped a few more drops of the AI dabbed it with a makeup sponge
its a bit hard to see here but using this technique gives it a very dementional look
I have also used this on smooth non porous surfaces with great results .
it works best with two colors of AI any more than that makes it look muddy.
