Silk Paper Medium

Silk Paper Medium



Stock code: CCSPM
Acrylic silk paper medium. Dilute 1 part silk medium to 6 parts water to make silk paper (or silk fusion as it is also known), decrease the amount of water for sculptural effects. Once dried the medium repels water and makes a crisp yet pliable paper. Great for use in papier mache techniques with pulp, fibres and paper

Making the Silk Paper:

1. Spread the fibres in 2-3 thin layers, perpendicular to each other, between two sheets of nylon mesh netting.
2. Dampened thoroughly with a solution of Silk Paper Medium and work into the fibres with a sponge. Remove excess solution with a clean, dry sponge.
3. Peel away the top sheet of netting or leave in place for a more textured paper.
4. Put on a cake cooling tray to dry and then carefully peel off the back sheet of netting
