Technical question here. How did you prepare the papyrus for writing? It's so wrinkled.

One of my favorites! I just wish it would flow at an appropriate speed sometimes! :-)

@sandrarwagner - I didn't do anything! It wasn't so difficult a surface for the brush, though I did abrade it a little after the letters were painted. I think there is a reference (Cicero, Pliny?) about the papyrus being treated somehow - maybe a slim cost of clay- but I haven't researched it yet. Best to you Sandy🙂
