Flower 'Ua' Plaster Carving

Here is the image I was mentioning in the post of 
the rubber stamp Plaster of Paris Box carving.
You can see that the image didn't print very clearly.
The texture is nice though. I took a cookie cutter and
filled it with plaster. Let it dry and then etched 
into the top of it. I then coated it with 
acrylic paint, using my finger, and printed
 onto Mulberry paper. The word 'Ua' is 
Swahili for 'Flower'. We currently have a 
student from Tanzania staying with us and
that is why I used that language. It is a very pretty
pretty language to hear spoken!
