Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paste paper designs have been used for centuries to decorate book covers and endpapers. A close relative of the finger-paintings of our youth, the basic paste paper technique involves dampening a sheet of paper, coating it with colored paste, and then drawing various implements through the paste to create deceptively sophisticated designs. It's simple, fun, and used by crafters everywhere to create one-of-a-kind graphics and colorful patterns.

In The Art of Making Paste Papers, a noted paper artist and author demonstrates, step by step, how to create beautifully patterned papers...from preparing the papers and applying the paste to producing combed, textured, stamped, and even hand-drawn designs. The reader will see how to use paste papers to make scrapbooks, greeting cards, picture mats, boxes, and other projects — as well as discover the dazzling work of an international roster of paste paper designers. Paper?making it, decorating it, and creating with it — is wildly popular among paper artists and crafters everywhere. The Art of Making Paste Papers is your perfect hands-on guide to learning and mastering this beautiful and practical art!
