How to Roll and Dry Recycled Paper Art
On behalf of tvlesson.com my name is Sherie Tengbergen. I’m a professional artist with the watercolorgourmet.com. In this clip on recycle paper art I’m going to show you how to spread your paper and roll it out so that it’s nice and thin and ready to dry.
Now I’ve already pretty match patted down and gotten rid of quite a bit of the water for my paper and I’m going to just kind like form it into a little bit of a shape here and then I’m going to take Saran wrap or clear plastic wrap and I’m going to lay it on top of my hand made paper and underneath I have a sheet of parchment paper.
Now I take my rolling pin now and I'm going to start really easily rolling this paper and I like to go in both directions so I kind a bit nice even piece of paper and I'm kind move the Saran wrap a little bit or the clear plastic wrap as I am rolling out my paper. Now in order to help with the drying process once I have my paper rolled out, I take a paper towel and I lay it on top like this and I use that to help me roll it even thinner.
I don’t use any glue to make my paper, I find it I really don’t need it. So that’s really a nice way to get a nice thin piece of paper. If you particular size of paper you can put wooden sticks on either side so that you get the same size, height. Now if you see that your paper is come apart on the edges, you can just push it in with your fingers and roll it again.
And what I do with this paper towel is I open up my blender and I throw it in and I use it for my next batch of paper. And that’s how we make the paper nice and thin and now I will leave it dry. On behalf of tvlesson.com this is Sherie Tengbergen and thank you for watching.
