Miniature’s progress

Pausing while i wait for the miniature to dry enough to press.

clean back

It is so good to see the pile of paper and the clean back.  So glad I thought of the newspaper to catch the pieces! It wasn’t as bad as I expected, removing the paper. It took about an hour, but I doubt it will take as long again, since the first half took 45 minutes and the last half 15.  Only part of the explanation is that I got the hang of it.  I think I rushed too quickly into it, and it got easier as it got drier.

At the workshop we’d had a discussion of how long to let it dry, Terrie being from a drier area out west than our humid Indiana.  Next time I’ll wait 45 minutes to an hour.

So after I press it, I’ll get serious about borders.
