I've been making some fabric paper ....









I had a go with very open weave muslin, doubled, some pva glue, screwed up tissue paper and bits of newspaper, all brushed into the muslin in bits, then painted with primary colours while still wet. It dried like this. I'm quite pleased. Before ditching the empty pot, I added some dried up gold paint (hate throwing anything away!) to parts of it - it shows more on the blue area. I shall add interference or some other medium at some stage, but till then .........

Wow Val these are fantastic-and I love the way that the newsprint just peeps through.
What type of paint did you use?

Beautiful fabric paper Val - lovely colours. If twenty of us made some, using the same method, there would be twenty different results. That always fascinates me. I'm making silk paper at present and that alters according to who is making it. Mine is quite different from my friend's.
