Paste Paper & Book Making

December 14, 2019, 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM


Paste paper is a painting technique that allows you to quickly and creatively create decorative papers. The acrylic paint is mixed with a wheat based paste that is then spread in thin layers on a piece of paper. While it is still wet you draw in it with different tools, creating marks and textures which are then layered on top of each other. Once the layers are dry the papers can be used for any number of different projects: book covers, holiday wrapping paper, greeting cards, small framed images. It is easy, fun and addictive!
