This is a technique that is available through "Beautiful Faces" by Jane Davenport. I highly recommend you buy the book!
This was a fun piece using colored paper napkins with colors and patterns that spoke to me. I also used the following materials:
11x14 mixed media paper
Acrylic Matte Medium by Golden
White Gesso by Golden
Good large flat brush to glue tissue down & smaller flat brush for detail work.
I use a 4 for detail.
