Paper making and painting
After watching a video from Linda Kemshall about paper making on design matters recently ,
I ripped up some paper scraps, got out my mold and deckle
and old vitamiser/Blender
and made a bit of handmade paper.
Here is a good tutorial for making paper and the tools you need
This paper has not been pressed much, so it soaks up paint really well. More about that later.
Also on the paper theme, I had been wanting to try some painted paper hand towels for a while as they have such great texture.
I think this technique will be something I do whenever I have some paint left over from something as the textures are very nice.
