I am a paste painter and have just come across your web site. I have been working in paste paper for nearly 20 years, and researching historic paste papers. I am interested in knowing what resources you have researched so far.
Where are you (in general); I am in Calgary, Alberta.
I look forward to hearing from you.
I’ve just stumbled across your blog which I think is beautiful. I’ve just started looking into past papers and have never seen any with what appears to be a plate mark around the edge? Do you print them in some way or or do you apply the past directly to the paper? The crackle effect is also unlike anything i have seen before, would you mind explaining how you have achieved that?
Thanks so much for your help.
I have lost my good recepie for paste papers and now am going on a hunch. Too loose and does not hold to the paper for the second coat of color. I am using cooked rice flour which I cook and then add Wheat paste precooked to it for added thickner, I use also polymer medium to hold the acrylics onto the paper , howev er, it is not working well. I used to have no problem with rice and white wheat flour cooked together. Any suggestions.
