Re: Paste Paper vs. Paint Paper



The other advice I would throw in when talking about paste papers would be
not to limit yourself to the usual comb type tools or patterns.

We did paste papers with the teenagers at risk I work with and we went at
the surface with hands, brooms, we wadded the paper (large roll of canson)
up into a big rope then pulled it back apart - all sorts of things to get
organic marks.

As a result we were able to find incredible images in the finished pieces we
cut down to make book covers with - and it was a great way to introduce them
to what painting is all about.
