in the beginning...

Starting with acrylic paints in bottles and tubes, the process of painting les papiers colles began. The painting support is lowly deli paper and clothing pattern tissue paper...yes, that's right. Deli paper and clothing pattern tissue paper! The dry wax deli paper and pattern tissue are fragile yet remarkably durable.

We, Sandra and BJ, have been experimenting with acrylic paints applied with sponge rollers, fingers, rubber stamps...just any way we can get the paint to the paper.

We've bought a few ready-made rubber stamps, but the vast majority of the stamping is done with our hand carved 10"x10" stamps. (A photo will follow showing a stamp in the carving process).
