[BKARTS] Subject: Re: double-sided paste paper

In making paste papers, I never wet the paper, no matter what type it is. I 
tape the back down with double sided tape and as I spread the paste, it 
relaxes. I use either methylcellulose or paste mixed with acrylic paints. I 
always leave a margin on the paper that can be trimmed. Once finished and 
dried, I put the paper(s) under weight overnight to completely flatten. The next 
day I do side two, with no problems. Repeat with the paste design and the 
drying and pressing overnight. Some of my favorite papers are MBM Ingres, 
Rives BFK, Hammermill laser print- 28 lb commercial paper,   permalife, 
canson-mi-tientes, and Fabriano Ingres, and 20 pt library board.
Besides all the way mentioned for using double sided paste papers, 
additionally I use them to make book wrappers, creating a wonderful accompaniment to 
the books within.
