Paste papers are one of the earliest forms of decorative papers and have been used in bookbinding for over 400 years. They are made by applying one or more layers of colored starch to a dry or dampened sheet of paper. Impressions of all kinds can then be brushed, combed, drawn, pressed, and sponged into the surface medium to produce various effects. The dry surface can then be further embellished, for instance with gilding.
I accept commissions to create paste papers to suit a project's technical and aesthetic requirements, with a minimum order is 25 sheets.
