Chapter 2: Exploring Textures with Papers

I only had small pieces of black card to use (A6) so I put 2 tester pieces on each.  Ripping and folding with different types of paper.

 
Sample 1
  
Sample 2
  
Sample 3
 
Sample 4
Sample 5
 An A4 piece of card (or I should say 2 x A6 pieces taped together) for an experiment of scrunching paper down from A4 to fit in to a smaller section.

 
a - tissue paper
b - brown wrapping paper
c - tracing paper
d -  drafting paper
e - newspaper 
f - rice paper
g - kitchen roll
h - copy paper

A6 pieces of card with 'Manipulated tissue paper' samples.

 
Sample 1 - strips twisted and knotted
Sample 2 - holes punched then scrunched and holes glued around

Sample 3 - twisted strips then tissue glued over them

 
Sample 4 - piece of tissue put through a pleating machine

  
Sample 5 - pleated

  
Sample 6 - pleated, twisted and knotted 

Sample 7 - pleated, twisted and knotted

 
Sample 8 - pleated, scrunched with holes


Sample 9 - twisted, scrunched with holes

 
Sample 10 -  pleated, pleated with holes


Sample 11 - pleated

 
Sample 12 - pleated

  
Sample 13 - pleated and twisted


Sample 14 - pleated

  
Sample 15 - pleated, twisted and knotted

  
Sample 16 - scrunched, pleated and twisted


Sample 17 - pleated, twisted and knotted

I misread Sian's instructions - I should have combined 2 processes in the same piece of paper which I have done in some samples but in most of the them I  combined 2 processes in a sample.

What a lovely selection of samples, I especially like the ones you've done on the pleating machine, the look really exciting.
Thanks for dropping in on my blog, it was great to see another student there :-)
