Easy and fun! Make gorgeous papers to use as wrapping paper or in collage and bookmaking. Learn how to create fancy paper from simple white butcher paper that will look like expensive handmade fancy rice paper or alligator skin paper using simple acrylic painting techniques like sponging, rolling, layering, dry brushing, scraping, scumbling and paint transferring. Great way to use up miscellaneous old paints too.
