This paper tends to curl and crimp, so I took advantage of that to paint the raised parts and stamp into it, then press it again under a heavy sheet of glass. If you want very flat paper, you would leave the sheets on the felts, press them until totally dry, then probably leave them on the felts till you're ready to use them. This stuff has a will of its own, though and I like the effect of beaten metal you get with this approach, just working with its nature.
One of these is to go into a group show, the others may make their debut later. There's a lot more paper to use, and many small scraps wonderful for making monotone collages, along with scraps of white paper I made earlier. These pieces are to be framed in a plain wood frame, floated on a white background. Not yet titled, but suggestions welcomed as always.
It looks as if I have plenty of work to be getting on with. And I plan on making onionskin paper too, probably would be more translucent, but we'll see.
