YES!!!! this is the roll of
Red Rosin paper
that ....! carried back
(On the plane, from Miami)
It weighs about 8 lbs.
I could not find it
here in Canada.....
You have to understand
that artists get obsessed with
things they cant find!
Its wonderfully strong
and accepts paint and
and I had to have it!!!
Some friends have asked me about that turquoise
paper on my journal pages and how I made it.
I did some yesterday and here are my results.
Originally I used card stock , for my base.
But here Ive used Red Rosin paper.
!) Gesso your paper and set it to dry....
2) I then glued stripes of Ledger paper,
I have also used phone book pages, etc
3) Take a clean foam meat tray
Roll turquoise paint over the bottom of the tray.
Flip it over on to the Rosin paper and rub
the backside on to the gessoed paper
making a mono print.
Repeat as many times as you like.
You can also add different colors adding variations
here I used a small amount of shade flesh.
4) from here you can go on to spatter, stamp
add stucco etc for texture
Each piece of paper will turn out different and
Im sure you will be surprised along the way.
Let me know how you do and have FUN!!!!!
