This class is centered around building a palette of colored paper pulp which will be used in learning the reverse pulp painting technique. Colors will be made with natural earth pigments, lake pigments extracted from dyes, and predyed fabric scraps, as well as the neutrals inherent to paper fibers. Reverse pulp painting is a versatile technique produces finely detailed patterns, subtle layering, and other interested effects. Another advantage of this technique is that it can be done with out a press or drybox, equipment that many people don’t have access to.
Product of class will be a paper sample book of all of the colors and fibers types made during the class, and a stack of patterned paper and art pieces.
