Paper casting

Over at WetCanvas, we did some simple paper casting as an October mixed media forum challenge. The results were really fun! It’s so easy to do, as our friend Sue explained to us. Most of us used one of two simple methods:

* wet some toilet paper with liquid starch and press it into a mold, or
* wet a piece of watercolor paper and mold around the object with your fingers

Obviously there are a lot more sophisticated ways to do paper casting, but we found that these two methods were very versatile, and allowed us to experiment using stuff we already had around the house! Sue graciously listed many other links, which you can find over at the WC thread.
