We followed the recipe here on My Handbound Books- Bookbinding Blog.
|I covered our working surface with plastic table cloth and cut large pieces of paper to work with. |
We also used smaller card stock squares.
|I found that cutting notches into gift cards were a great marking tool.|
|I found other mark making tools.|
|Cooking the flour-water paste in a double boiler.|
|Add acrylic paints in small amounts.|
|Spread onto paper using a foam brush, a spoon, or a brayer.|
|Using a brayer to spread the paint to an even thickness.|
|Lego made a cool mark!|
|Adding two colours and swirling on top of swirls.|

|I pressed fresh hydrangea leaves into the paste.|
|I used old map paper to add paint to. More translucent paint (more paste, less paint in the mix) |
would have worked better.
Can't wait to use my finished papers as a foundation for something else!
