mod podged paper cut silhouette

I just received some really rusted vintage ceiling tiles.  First I mod podged some tissue paper to the depressed area in hopes it would lighten the area so that the paper cut silhouette would stand out better.  Unfortunately, it became a bit too transparent when the mod podge dried.  Another challange was finding a way to bring out the raised details.  I applied rust stop to the raised portion.  


It turned out okay for a practice piece.
