Mermaids Under a Star
This was my favorite hand cut kirigami mandala of the past week. Wouldn't you know, then, that this would be the one to come out defective when laminated? Approximately one in ten kirigami pieces, when laminated, have enough small bubbles in them to be noticeable in the final result. Small irregularities are the norm but when the bubbles are either large or numerous, I count the item as a loss. This one is borderline. Not too noticeable but enough to not list online. I will hang it in my home gallery so people can inspect it personally. Dang. Perhaps I will try making a similar one.
