Paste Papers

My friend Deedy and I spent the day last weekend making paste papers. Neither of us had ever done it before, but we were pleased with the results and variations we could come up with.

We mixed Reeves gouache and Windsor Newton watercolor with premade Home Depot wallpaper paste and homemade starch paste using these instructions. We tried a bunch of different paper, but for our purposes, actually found that card stock worked the best without soaking it or wetting it down beforehand.

This is a set in one variation, using blue-green paint and a surf wax comb.
