How Chiyogami is made
When I show my work at craft shows, I use a number of signs in my booth to give folks information about one thing or another. I have a selection of books that are made with Chiyogami paper (a.k.a. Yuzen), which is silk screened by hand in Japan and I have a small sign that talks a bit about that process.
Too bad I don’t have room to show a video in my booth. Thanks to Pinterest, I just found a wonderful video produced by the Japanese Paper Place that shows Chiyogami as it’s made. The video makes the process look easy, but I’m not fooled. I know that’s hard work.
For those of you who can’t see the embedded YouTube video, here’s the link.
