This one-day class will offer step-by-step demonstrations and techniques on how to create decorative paste papers for use in gifts and future book arts projects. We will start by mixing our paste. Please pre-mix your methylcellulose listed on the supply list. Supply list will be provided at sign-up. If you have Canson, Fabriano or other similar colorful charcoal/drawing papers, they make a great base. Blick Art has a good selection. We will use simple everyday objects to create great patterns and also discuss how to use stencils and layering colors.
