Projects!

Day 45/365

As I’m sure you know by now, I’ve got a rather large arts and crafts show coming up, the One of a Kind Show.  I figure this is a good time to showcase the processes I go through in making some of my products.

Today’s featured project: hand dying paper!photo 3

Testing colours, making sure to get just the right hues.  I use a mix of inks and watercolour paints.

Mid-dying – yes, this is a messy process!  And I love it!

A side view of boards covered with my hand dyed paper, drying in the press, makes a great texture shot.
