Today I spent time working on the plan for tomorrow’s Paste Paper Photo Album class at Studio Place Arts.
I started off by making my resource booklets. This one’s a whopper at 12 pages – the biggest I’ve ever made!
Then I mixed up the first batch of paste. Look at them, all in a row and peaceful. Ah, my pretties!
Then began the making of the paste papers.
And then magically, they were dry!
Here’s a close-up of the yellow paper. I’m going to use it for a demo where I paste it up a second time with another color and comb it.
I used Golden heavy body acrylics to color my pastes and I’m thrilled with how vibrant the colors are. The Goldens are expensive, but worth it in my opinion. If you’re gonna color paste, color it darn good!
I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s class. I have 9 colors of paste in all, including gold and silver. I’ll take pictures so you can see how everything works out.
