Paste Paper--a decorative paper technique

  • Blackbird Letterpress 1607 Main Street Baton Rouge, LA, 70802 United States

Invented by 16th century nuns, paste paper is an historical method of making decorative paper by hand. A mixture of pigment, wheat paste and water is moved across the surface of paper to create different patterns and textures. This is a fun and easy technique. Resulting papers can be used in a myriad of ways, from bookbinding to scrapbooking to collages.
