This is it. The best technique I know for paper arts. If you’ve ever gone to 5 different art supply or craft stores looking for just the right paper…without luck? Then, you’ll love this! Paste Paper, one of the earliest forms of decorative papers, is commonly used for bookbinding, as well as calligraphy, printmaking, collage, stamping, and origami. Paste Paper is created using acrylic paint or similar pigments mixed in a suspension of paste. After being applied to a dampened sheet of paper, the colored paste can be patterned by pulling various utensils across the paste.
The true nature of this technique is seated within the realm of printmaking as a monoprint. Each paste paper is unique.
Just a quick note, paste paper is a little messy. I suggest wearing an old shirt!
