The Art of Making Paste Papers

( 1 )

Overview

Paste paper designs have been used for centuries to decorate book covers and endpapers. A close relative of the finger-paintings of our youth, the basic paste paper technique involves dampening a sheet of paper, coating it with colored paste, and then drawing various implements through the paste to create deceptively sophisticated designs. It’s simple, fun, and used by crafters everywhere to create one-of-a-kind graphics and colorful patterns.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Paste paper is a grown-up relative of grade-school finger painting. Designs are made by brushing colored paste on a dampened paper and making images using various tools. Maurer-Mathison (Art of the Scrapbook) presents a series of practice exercises and several step-by-step projects for turning the simple paste paper into a work of art. Combs, stamps, carved rollers, and multicolored under-painting make each paste paper unique and ready to be used as raw material for book covers and other decorative items. This is a fairly simple craft that will appeal to public and school library users.

    The Paste Paper Book We've All Been Waiting For!

    Diane Maurer-Mathison has produced a comprehensive guidebook on a popular but woefully undertreated subject. Good instructions, lots of beautiful color photos of the author's and others' work, and inspiration for applications that would otherwise never have occurred to readers. Absolute beginners as well as experienced paper decorators will find a wealth of practical how-tos and super-innovative techniques in this attractive volume. The author has filled an information void and lives up to her well-deserved reputation for excellence and high quality.
