Bookbinders from the 16th century used up their old paste by adding paint to it and making designs on paper that they then used to cover books. This technique is still used today by book artists. Join book arts expert Cindy Ferrari in making paste papers of your own! Paste papers make beautiful framed prints or can be used as wrapping paper, in making lined or covered gift boxes, collage, or any art project where surface design is preferred!
Bring any tool or household gadget that could be used to make a mark or pattern in paint (such as clay sculpting tools, paint brushes, needles, or even a hair comb). We will also layer colors and pull prints from one paper over another. You will leave this class with a multitude of prints and ideas for their use.
