Vol.V Paste Papers

This manual is not exactly intended to be for producing normal paste papers, there are many people making great paste papers, whose work can be seen on the web.

This manual, if I can call it that, was put together in order to help someone set up a small production facility making what I call "Paste Printed" papers.

This is an example of the sort of thing that can be done using this process.

If you wanted to include the printed designs shown on the left, you would need a decorative block of some kind.

Blocks of any design can be made quite cheaply in magnesium alloy, but I got my decorative blocks from an Oxfam shop, they were originally used in India by ladies who used them to decorate cloth, they cost me £5.00 each.

Even if you decide for some reason not to bother with the decorative blocks, you may still find some original ideas.

This picture may give you some idea of how I applied bands of colour, there are a lot of tips about using allum as a mordant, though I now doubt it is necessary to use alum in this process.

 

So this is an ideas manual, I hope you find it useful.
