paper mache figure - FINISHED

i painted it with brown acrylic mixed with glue. then when dry i put some emerald green + white acrylic mixed with glue and some water with a sponge. when dry i added some golden ink with my fingers on the rough edges. it's supposed to have the appearance of a bronze statue.

it looks like an obsession but it's not. it's just i'm working on this woodcut, and someone asked me to upload a pic of the woodcut itself. Here's a scan i did before i added a couple a details while checking the image, you know, horizontal flip (mirror) then change black into white, etc.
The upper part is missing as it's doesn't enter the scanner, it's 24 x 30 x 0.3 cm (9.6 x 12 x 6/5 inches). I can't scan it rght now since it's all golden and full of xilographic ink, then i'm posting this one.

i already stamped it in colours. the first print is a solid dark purple colour rectangle, then when dry i printed the woodcut in golden ink on top.

it's the first try that's why the golden print doesn't look ok. once i make other copies the layer will look solid.

(the image: i used a sketch i did of a painting by Fader)
