Italian AoA

So in the spirit of trying new techniques, I was attempting a new style of illumination. 
It's a later period Italian style, from Naples from a book by Albinus, Johannes entitled Excerpta ex Blondi decadibus - BSB Clm 11324, 1494.

 When I got the scroll assignment for Brygithe (again)  I knew that I had to use this experiemental piece for her, since she got the last experimental piece that I did.  See THIS http://manuscriptjunkie.blogspot.com/2014/04/black-hours-pleides.html

Anyway.  The gold on red/red on gold went down onto the paper fairly easily.  The same cannot be said for the blue stippling. I think I need to consult an expert before I try it again, because I just couldn't get it to lay like it does on the book page.
