an alternative technique to carefully painting the relief parts and some of the background is to flood the pattern with colour, allow to dry and then sand of the relief, as I had already sanded this bit down – just to see how well it sanded – there was not much left to sand off but you get the idea. I could now paint the high spots with a contrasting colour or leave it white.
