As I saw the title ‘Papyrus’ in connection with ‘crafting’ (English for ‘bricolage’) I was instantly interested.
And the technique is easy and convincing.
The tutorial is in French, but there are very good illustrating photos.
And this is, what you have to do:
- gauze or cheesecloth
- wallpaper paste
- some coffee for colouring
- a soft brush
- a sheet of plastic foil
- some water
Prepare the wallpaper paste with some cold coffee, not to liquid and not to solid.
Put the gauze on the sheet of plastic foil and coat them with the paste.
Let dry on a flat surface.
Check the photos in the tutorial to better understand what to do.
I used my piece of Faux Papyus on a card with a leaf and some other background papers.
