I am challenged and humbled by the process once more. More blocks, more chances to goof. In the end I think I ended up with a fairly good success rate on the prints despite my annoying habit of experimenting.
I used Akua-Kolor without rice paste, with rice paste applied separately and with rice paste mixed in. It flows better with paste, although the \"without\" look is very deserty.
I grew up listening and memorizing Beatles songs even though I never understood the words until I learned English later in life. \"The Fool on the Hill\" attracted me as a child, which may give some insight into what kind of child I was.
I always liked nature and climbing and being where others could only point to in amazement. Three years ago in the Grand Canyon (South Rim, Colorado USA) I again had a chance to climb and sit on my hill, and watch the sun going down.
