Paper casting

Mary Gilmour, a well know local paper artist invited Marion and me to spend the day with her friend Toni, learning to cast paper. Instead of using collected natural fibres from the local area, we cut and soaked mat board off cuts. These were whizzed up in Mary's blender to form very fine white fibres. The paper we pulled was VERY thick! This was pressed before we pushed it onto tree stumps and tree trunks.

We have yet to do something with the outcomes of our day. But I have attached some photos of us making the castings.
