Abstract:

In Paper Art, authors Diane Maurer-Mathison and Jennifer Philippoff examine this fascinating artform from three perspectives: . Papermaking. All manner of ingredients can be used to create papers, or to enhance the texture of a sheet. Special inserts placed on molds allow papermakers to produce papers in virtually any shape. Paper pulp can also be woven, sculpted, colored, carved, squirted onto a mold to produce a painting, or cast into a shape to amuse or inspire. Decorating Paper. Papers can be embellished with a range of decorative techniques, from traditional to experimental, including embossing, stenciling, stamping, printing (using vegetables, carved blocks, rollers, leaves, plastic wrap, and salt), paste papers, batik, orizomegami, and marbling. Papercraft Techniques. This section demonstrates how to use the papers you've produced, purchased, or scavenged in collage, papier-mache, rolling, cutting, weaving, pleating, pop-ups, and sculpture. Showcasing the work of nearly 50 leading artists,Paper Art is an indispensable reference designed to entice novices into trying a new craft and to encourage working paper artists to experiment with new techniques.
