Paste painting, a surface design technique, uses mark-making tools to manipulate pigmented paste to create beautiful decorative papers. These sheets can be used in books, collage, cards, and more. After you set up a work space on an available large, flat surface, such as a kitchen table or desk, you are able to create sheet after sheet of amazing papers. You can be precise with graining tools and specific patterns—or enjoy the wonder of color mixing with freeform abandon. Paste painting is also a great activity to share with kids.
