I have been wanting to try this for ages but never got around to it-so when the opportunity arose I decided to go for it.
There are a few recipes on the internet for making the paste using cornstarch and similar products but they had to be cooked so I chose the one here which used wallpaper paste.
The idea is that you mix up the powder with warm water and when it is all dissolved you add the acrylic paints and mix well.
Next you paint the mixture onto the paper and then make marks in the paint with pattern tools.
I used a Tsukineko multi purpose squeegee tool which is a three sided gizmo and one of the sides has teeth cut into it.
I just drew the designs and hoped for the best.
This one was created with the side of a spatula-----------------
In this one I used two different blues painted in a check design-then I drew squiggles with the squeegee on an angle and lastly I used the bottom of an egg carton to form a new pattern.
Again I used the egg carton------------
