LARMT and the Rain

I visited my etchings along the Los Angeles River to see how they held up in the rain.

This one fared the worst.  Not enough paste.
Before it rained, someone tried to remove this one. 

Etching 2 had the least damage because it is not pasted on the ground.

The paper is too thick, and bows when it gets wet.  If the paper did not bow, the wheat paste would re-glue the image to the pavement when it dried.

The images have stayed intact even though I am using a water based ink.

I added more paste and secured the paper with some stones. 
Still 6 more days of rain ahead.
