paste paper samples

These are samples from a new series of paste papers I designed and made a few days ago; I am using them to bind the covers of japanese stab bound style albums I am creating like the one on the above photograph.  The paste I made for this batch was a mixture of flour, corn starch and alum. I used acrylic colors and once the papers were dried as a final step I polished them with bees wax! They really look beautiful!!!
