While the cold continues, I am inside doing more paper manipulations. It is a sickness. Currently I am obsessed with pulping up tissue paper and water, then straining it with a flat seive thing I have, then dumping it onto a flat surface, pressing the water out with a towel, poking holes in it with an orange stick, letting it dry overnight, glueing sand or fibers onto it, then painting it. A lot of work, but it keeps me out of trouble, and the results are pleasing to my sight. Here is a piece I have just glued sand to:
And here are two painted pieces, one with sand and one with gampi fibers glued on.
If all goes well, I'll have a finished collage to post in a day or two.
