She first provides advice on paper/ink/paint choices, and introduces the tools needed to complete the projects. Every following chapter showcases multiple methods of painting techniques: washes, stencils, masking, gesso resist, paste papers (an entire chapter!), layered inks, and more. After working your way through the techniques presented, you will have a wealth of beautiful papers -- and in the final chapter, Alisa shows exactly how to use these great papers. Color photos and diagrams illustrate book/paper projects designed specifically to transform your newly painted papers into: an origami envelope, an accordion-folded album, and a decorative box, and much more! Packed with painting techniques and book projects, this title will keep your creative fires ablaze.
