Shredded paper paintings
Today we began to experiment painting onto shredded paper canvas's. We had glued some shredded paper onto a piece of A4 size paper last week and today using various brush techniques we practised painting our faces onto the paper.
It was quite different from 'normal' painting and involved much dabbing, prodding and squishing of brushes to apply the paint. Some people found they had not glued enough shredded paper onto theeir canvas and somepeople found they had glued too much. We will review our work again and then prepare another canvas to do a wall quality art work.
