Last week I spent a good amount of my time trying my hand at paper-making. I confess, I’ve never really found an ‘in’ to paper-making before. Recently I’ve been printing up cyanotypes and really fell in love with the process — I decided to take the plunge and make blue paper for all the images I’m working with… yeah, yeah, blue paper for blue prints = not that innovative, but…it’s pretty. And I get to do pretty sometimes.
