Today and the day after I would continue using the technique of putting cut-out papers between two sheets of paper. I had cut many rectangles and was able to make 16 compositions within the timeframe. We were all hyped, because the chance of making Japanese paper is low. The last two photos are the same paper but one held before a lightsource. With the upcoming Mino Akari Art Festival in mind I was thinking about how to use these papers.
During this workshop you learn how to make a standard sheet of paper and two other kinds of paper. The proces of making a standard sheet is basis for making the others.
With ready-cut out papers you can "decorate" your paper. You do this by placing the cut-out papers on top of the first sheet of paper and cover it with a second sheet of paper.
The second kind of paper is a structured paper. On top of the sheet of paper you put a metal grid. From more than 150 cm up high you spray water on the paper. Naturally the paper becomes more thin within the grid.
