I did a batch of fabric paper samples the other day for a specific project I have in mind about leaves.
before on a base of cotton, painted with diluted PVA.
I got very involved in the process and forgot to photograph, but I used the red dye again over the tissue paper.
All in all it was a very productive afternoon. Now I just need to get on with my designs for the project.
For those in places other than Australia, PVA is wood glue, or white glue.
If you use scraps to experiment, you can sometimes end up with treasures.
