"This Shoo Tall Pass" by Julia Silbermann It is gouache and gold leaf on black water color paper. All colored areas have a white underpainting with Dr. Martin's Bleedproof White. The piece was done in several layers, that were treated with sprayfix. The gold leaf on the letters S, O and T was laid on a base of Instacoll.
This work was done by Suzan O‘ Connor in San Antonio. After sketching with pencil on Arches Text Wove, she used watercolor to paint in the border (Holbein Gold worked well as a background), and then she embellished it with patent gold over Instacoll.
