I was wondering if anyone uses the intergraphic/interpoint capability of their embossers with the idea of the texture it creates on the opposite page?

I am working with a Tiger and thinking about the patterns made on the back of the paper and wondered if this could be
used consciously for its affect?

1.       Could the reverse of an embossed line  be used for instance to represent "behind"? Say if one is trying to show mountains behind mountains?

2.       Is there a haptic difference between an embossed line and the reverse of the embossed line? I mean does the finger notice a difference between the two lines (haven't tested it out yet)?

3.       By using both sides of the paper to produce an effect on the first page, could this increase the texture "pallet" of an embosser?

4.       Could it be called a "negative" texture?

5.       Could one use words like "intense" to describe a more defined texture?

So if you want to try it out this is what I did - draw a few mountain forms with the text/braille color on one side, line width two and on page two drew lines behind with color 1, width 1 and took away points to make the lines even more vague.  The idea being that lines from page two will be of a weaker "intensity" (but still discernable) when touched from page 1 then if I had used color 1, width 1.
