Great Reference Book
Usually if I find a good book I will link to it in relation to the craft I am doing, however this one relates to so many paper crafts for children it gets its own review!
The title ‘Paint on Paper’ did not make me think of craft however it is not about painting as an art, it is about decorating paper to use for other purposes like scrapbooking, cards, paper sculptures, stationery and much more. It is also more than just about using paint, it is about any method that can be used to decorate the surface of the paper. It has over 130 different techniques and I find it an excellent reference book. It does give lots of examples on the decorated paper used in crafts as well, but the main focus is the huge range of techniques.
The techniques also range from those suitable for young children to those an adult would use to create faux decorative finishes on furniture or walls. The pages I have photographed show the techniques, other pages show examples using the decorated paper.
