Fire is mostly done:

Spent this morning adding smoke, adding contrast and color to the burnt pages, and crisping edges all over.

Wrote the Dante's Inferno excerpt from Canto V in Italian on the page on the left. The trickiest part was placing the sentences correctly on the page. I ended up writing the first and longest one backwards across the top of the page, then positioning the following lines beneath the center word and painting in both direction until I ran out of page.
Have mercy.

Per più fiate li occhi ci sospinse
quella lettura, e scolorocci il viso;
ma solo un punto fu quel che ci vinse.

Quando leggemmo il disiato riso
esser basciato da cotanto amante,
questi, che mai da me non fia diviso,

la bocca mi basciò tutto tremante.
Galeotto fu 'l libro e chi lo scrisse:
quel giorno più non vi leggemmo avante.

Now that the lettering is done, I'll be making those edges a touch more burnt siena shading into the carbon in a day or two.

I can plan on varnishing it in two weeks, along with Air, BlueScreen and BoomLift. Then I'll be hopping from LightGrid, which needs a lot of work, and the TSRTS, right up until a week before the November show. Then it'll be all TSRTS, all the time.
