In Jacksonville Alabama this weekend making paste papers with Larry Lou Foster and Mary Ann Sampson - its been great hanging out with everyone and having time to make stuff - really into the idea of select spotting pulled papers - want to make some thicker paste to try and idea kind of like daubing with snow like globs? Really want to make some coral/vein like pulls of things - we are using a combination of wheat paste and pva which / drys a lot faster! Doing some screen and transfer stuff etc. I use paste papers mostly for case binding and some tapes and portfolios.....would like to do some chitsu covers and experiment with using some gelatin printing with paste paper techniques. I really like the historical tradition of paste papers - both as endpapers and covers.
