Upcoming Show


During the next week I’ll be preparing work for a show at the Penny George Institute for Health and Healing in Minneapolis. The show will hang for almost two months.

Completed katazome paper

I’m happy with the results of my katazome on paper experiment. I painted 3 coats of soy-based natural pigments using a very dry brush. I let the paper dry between each coat. After several days I let it soak for approx. 10 minutes in my bathtub, one sheet at a time. I drained the water out, and gently sprayed the paper to wash away the last bits of resist. Finally, I let the paper dry in the open air on top of sheets newspaper. Gentle handling is necessary. I plan a trip to the  hardware store next weekend and I should be able to complete this project. I’m following instructions from the book,  Paper Illuminated by Helen Hiebert.
