Leather Box with Paste Paper Cards

Another art project done during my art degree at BYU:

3″ square pieces of paste paper were cut and mounted to cards using the Chine-collé printmaking method (printmaking paper is soaked, paste is applied to the back side of the paste paper, and then the paste paper is placed pattern-side down on a 3″ beveled printing plate. The paper is placed over the plate and paste paper, and the whole thing is run through an Intaglio printing press. The result is the embossed card).

There are about 60 cards total in the box.

    I really love your paste paper and have read your blog on how to make it. I wonder whether it might be an idea to experiment with your paste formula to prevent the some of the crazing and cracking. Adding some M155 PVA to the mix would make the paste more plastic and less likely to crack.
    I realize that this may well be intentional, in which case please ignore my impertinent interference.
    Best wishes,
    Simeon.
