Today, I am playing around with textured papers. It is always fun to try new techniques.
As a way to step out of my comfort zone, I am playing around with light molding paste and plaster of paris on various paper. They are giving me some interesting textures that I can not get with just stamps.
The molding paste gives the paper a velvety look and feel. The plaster of paris gives it a smoother overall texture, but is also amenable to layering, which can result in thick and thin spots that add interest.
Not sure how I will use these in my artwork, but I like the results.
