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.
