Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Cut and Create Paper Mosaics shows how to make paper mosaics, similar to those ultra-popular creations by artists which range from Henri Matisse’ later works to Eric Carle’s children’s books. It is a great venue for artistic expression which is both quick and easy to do, yet beautiful to behold once complete. The set includes a clear explanatory book, along with templates and “painted” patterned paper to cut out and assemble yourself. There is a paint-by-numbers aspect which helps prevent mistakes without cramping anyone’s artistic styles. The projects include patterns of various objects, with implied modernist/folk perspective, with a lovely variety of palettes, color ranges, patterns, and approaches. Really fun to do, too!
