What a cool idea to make silk paper then cut the bits and use as mosaics for other projects. Have never made paper before…all I can think of is that icky paper maiche stuff we did as kids at the local part district craft fairs. Love the "gaudy" one!
I love silk paper and it is so easy to do. There are a couple of methods to make the silk paper, the easiest is laying it on paper like a grocery bag then ironing it with waxed paper over it or using a spray starch and ironing it. I've used CMC and acrylic medium diluted as well. The hardest part is keeping the silk from flying around!
