This painting has been lovingly made with layers from an old novel glued down and painted over with areas left revealing tiny bits of the old story. I have used gold leaf too in this painting. The colours are delicate yet vibrant because of the protective layer of epoxy resin on top.
It is unframed and ready to hang - but you could get it professionally framed with a "floating" wooden frame which would hide any untidy edges where the epoxy resin has dribbled down the sides.
