What is Paste Paper?


Paste paper is made by boiling cornstarch and water until it is thick and then, mixing it with acrylic paint.  Wet a sheet of paper and brush on the paste mixture.  Using a variety of tools like combs, rings and found objects, create marks on the paper by dragging these implements across the surface.  Let the paint dry and, voila, you have a beautiful color paper to use in creating a variety of masterpieces.  We used ours to create a paste paper pollinator collage.
