Mixed Media Monday - Helping Hands

This week on Mixed Media Monday Janny has issued a fun challenge - "helping hands". This is a canvas I painted for the challenge - it's 5 x 7 inches or 12.5 x 18 cms. I used tissue paper, cheese cloth and modelling paste for texture. You can see part of a sign language chart peeping through, I thought that suited the theme quite well. Unfortunately, the copper metallic paint and the copper leaf doesn't show up in the scan, but the painting has a little bit of glitz in real life. Thanks for the fun challenge, Janny!
