Albie Smith taught a Paste Paper class at Art and Soul that I took. We used thickened paint and did things to the painted surface to create pattern. This one had that textured comb you can get at a hardware store drawn through the paint.This one has layers of paint with sequin waste used on the surface with a sponge to lift off paint.
Rubber Stamps work well to add a layer and interest to the piece.
Sequin waste is great to use as a stencil. Rubber stamps were used under that layer and over the original paint.We made a small book with the papers which I have shown on it's side. It's one of those mornings.Here is the inside with more of the painted papers used to wrap the signatures. It was a great class.

I love the work you have done, I first saw this type of thing in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam but couldn't find any details on the method... that was before the web... since then I have had a go myself, but your work is just beautiful - thanks for posting it.
