You know what? Every drop of sweat and tap of computer keys is worth it when I finally get to bring a workshop into the classroom. My students take everything I've dreamed up and add more. I get to share that with my next class and the circle continues on.
Paste Paper is such a wonder; more than the sum of it's parts. We did everything short of rolling in it and, given the right time of day (perhaps after the manager's reception?), that would've been tempting. There are a bunch of recipes out there for paste paper and yes, indeed, it is fun to do in a group. I stand firmly by using Golden Acrylics as they have such strong color - it goes a long way. I've been promised shots of the finished flag books so they'll be up at some point.
I read about an artist who calls blowing ink through a straw Breath Portraits. Very poetic and a whole lotta fun. I like those small straws from coffee shops. Just put a little puddle of ink on your paper and blow through the straw. Yeah, it's fun. And not nearly as messy as it sounds.
