Paste Paper

pastepaper1Explore the colorful and creative world of Book Arts by making paste papers! For hundreds of years paste papers were used by bookbinders as decorative endsheets that added a unique embellishment to the book. But you can create paste papers for an endless variety of applications, including decorative covering for boxes, frames, journals, cards or stationery. Students will learn a bit of the history of paste papers, look at both historical and modern examples, get a lesson on mixing methyl cellulose, and then be set free to create their own set of colorful and unique paste papers.
