I made 4 more types of papers on Friday. The string paper was made by laying pieces of string in a grid fashion across tissue paper, then lay another piece of tissue on top, then coating it with a mix of liquid acrylic paint, gloss medium and water.
The unuyru, lace and tissue papers are simply coated with the same mixture in whatever colors are desired. I made several different colors of all the different papers. It's good to have a good supply of colors, shades, textures and papers before you begin to build your collage. The papers are laid on white plastic garbage bags and then hung up to dry with clip hangars. After drying they can be embellished using stamps, stencils, or freehand.
When dried they can easily be stored in color groupings on the hangars in a closet for easy access.
I can't wait for the next step of designing the collage without adhesives.
