Manuscript - 2

I was quite peased with the results of this manuscript.  I attached some tin foil to a piece of printer paper using 505 spray textile glue.  I printed the image onto the tin foiled paper then left it to dry overnight.  It doesn't dry to the foil, it will rub off if you touch it so I sprayed it again with the glue and attaced a piece of painted garden fleece (apologies to my Cordyline who hasn't got as thick a winter jacket as it thought it would).  You can see that it looks nice and old against the printed page I did.
