Tyvek can be used like paper for making paste paper patterns, using
Methyl Cellulose Paste powder and acrylic paints. Or it can be coloured
by rubbing acrylic paint into the surface so that it is similar to
Elephanthide paper in appearance.
You can probably do mono prints on it too. The only disadvantage is
that if stretched , it cannot be persuaded to shrink again, and creases
are also hard to disguise.
It can be glued with PVA easily.
Have fun. Elizabeth Steiner
