Craft Demonstrations

Papermaking

by Cyndi Mylynne, Double Vision Studio

Most artists prize their work; Cyndi beats it up. This paper artist will share the messy process of creating paper art by beating plant fiber to a pulp, soaking it in water, and dying it with pigments as you watch. To use the handmade paper in her abstract artwork she stamps the sheets with found objects including gears and fossils to create texture and impressions.
