When I attempted to varnish the original lotus painting, I had a disaster.
After watching several videos online on varnishing paintings, I started to do it. The red and pink paints rolled up with the roller. I was beside myself.
I tried to overpaint, but wasn’t at all satisfied, so I bought a new canvas, and started again.

Texture using gel medium and texture paste on stencils.
The magic happened then and here’s the new Lotus Blossom.
