Challenges or observations: I found that checking the weather to see how high the UV index was helped me estimate my exposure and choose a time of day when exposure would be strongest. Also, using a foam brush made it gentle on the paper and absorbed excess, but I should’ve strained the mixture because the berries got stuck in it.
