New Collage Papers

Some new papers I made by Roberta Warshaw

I thought I would share some of the latest collage papers I made using two different types of printing papers. I know that some people use tissue paper for this but I wanted to use only acid free papers so for the base paper I used Yasutomo sketch paper and for the crumpled paper on top I used Hanshi paper.

The process is simple. Paint acrylic medium on the base paper and adhere the crumpled Hanshi paper on top of that. Then paint more acrylic medium on top of the crumpled paper flattening the wrinkles as you go so that it is all adhered.

When the paper is dry, paint it with whatever colors you want to have in your palette.

I really love the way these look!

Love the colors. They remind me of stained glass...

I like them too. I made some stained tissue papers but these look so much richer.

Gorgeous colors and texture and now that I've seen your collage work I just know that this paper will end up in all the right places, rightfully arranged and artfully placed.

They are interesting aren't they? I am learning so many new techniques with just paper.
