I experimented with cellophane for my project entitled 'Trial by Ordeal', the material's low permeability to oils and water allowed it to sustain the Polyvinyl alcohol glue(PVA)and the paint which I placed upon it. I asked my peers to help me test their effectiveness and placed various coloured sheets on the wall for the students to test (Fig. 1). Each student took a sheet of coloured cellophane and placed it in front of a painted canvas. I welded a supporting hook for this purpose. It was, however, the clear cellophane which proved to be the most effective for it neither distracted the viewer from the painted image itself, nor did it eclipse the image entirely.
