On this page I want to share some experiments and experiences I made with some material.
Alison made some Resin paper and as I do not know where to get that stuff here, I tried what I had.
I used kolophonium (picture above), which is a natural resin and is dissolved in spiritus. While using it you must avoid breathing the odour. I use it in a special room or outside. I applied it with a brush and one coat brought the following results.
I tried it with 2 different kinds of paper. The left paper is a very old thin paper and it gives very good results. The right paper is a normal 80 g copy paper. Result is not as good, but good enough to see a newspaper through. I tried it on a tag (meanwhile two tags) and I wanted to put in addition all kinds of writing and stamping on it, but when I pasted the picture on the tag, it was clear: less is more. I think you agree.
If you are interested, this is the place, where it happens. I call it hell´s kitchen or my lovely mess. The black stamps in front on the right hand side are cut from packing material. Very easy to make.
