Today I made sculptured paper. I laid out aluminum foil and a paper towel. I painted gesso onto the paper towels and left them to dry. The next step will be to paint them and when that dries the next step is to crinkle the foil and paper towel, then flatten the paper and paint over it all with black paint and gently wipe it off so that it only catches in the crinkles. Then it will be ready to use in projects. It makes “paper” that can be sculpted into projects.
