Yes, I was playing with matches. I got the bright idea to burn some painted paper and it turned out pretty cool. I put together this nifty little collage with my results. FYI, if you try this I'd highly recommend you do so in a well ventilated area. I found this out the hard way.
I also got to use my bottle of Windsor Newton burnt sienna ink. Rather than the reddish brown color the name implies this ink is a brilliant shade of vermilion however when it hit a surface it lost it's vibrancy. The only thing that I found that didn't dull the color was white paper towel. Ok! I can work with that. When the paper towel was dry I glued it on to a piece of tracing paper and voila.
