Berries and Birds - Screen Print and Paste Paper

This screen print is of my design which was made some time ago... it has been sitting in my portfolio for a while as I could not figure out how to finish it. Originally it was just the screen print, but this seemed a bit too graphic for my liking.

Seeking out some new techniques this year I discovered Paste Paper. Fantastically low tech - its flour water mixed up and then acrylic paint added – it’s great for mark making!

So…I have applied my paste over the top of the original screen print and drawn onto my design, you can see the swirls from the birds. The result is textural and painterly, with loads more movement in the print.

Width: 30 cm
Height: 43 cm

Thanks, Mandy

Apparently Paste Papers were used by early bookbinders as end papers for their covers. As I mentioned, the paste paint is made from flour and water and then acrylic is added to form the ‘paste.’

It can then be brushed onto paper where mark making begins using sticks, combs... anything really.
