Many people have tried paste papers but are not satisfied with the results. This class will help you to learn the proper techniques for making paste papers with a beautiful, smooth velvety finish. These papers are wonderful for binding books, making boxes, backgrounds for stamping and collages. Because we are using a methyl-cellulose paste the surface is great for writing on – making them good for calligraphy projects or beautiful journal pages! Students will work with a limited palette and simple color theories to keep their papers brilliant and beautiful. There will be lots of tools on hand for making various patterns and images in the paste! 

Kit fee– $8 includes:
Sponge Brushes
8 sheets 10” x 13” Arches Text Wove Paper
Course handouts with paste paper recipes and techniques

Teacher will provide for class to share:
Heavy body acrylic paints
Miscellaneous mark making tools
Containers for paste
Latex Gloves
