However I read the tutorial on Maggie Grey's blog about oiled paper recently and thought I would give it a go. I have worked with oiled brown paper before, but not photocopy paper.
The bottom photo is the result of lots of crumpling and then oiling the end result,
The end paper looks better in real life than it does in the photo. I think I will do another paper so I have four and make them into a vessel. I have to wait for a few days for the oil to soak in before I continue.
We are having some hot days here, but nothing like the heatwave over much of Australia, and no fires here either, thank heavens. I feel so sorry for all those who have lost so much, Australia can be a cruel country at times.
