Tissue Paper Collages

Yesterday morning was spent in the studio, working with tissue paper again. I am enjoying the color shifts that occur when the layers of tissue paper are overlapped and glazed. I also like the dark graphic lines in these. I plan to experiment more with this technique on the tissue paper, but today I am planning to try it with dyed scrim. These pieces are each 4"x6".

These are really beautiful compositions. I like how you were able to screenprint on them.


I'm curious, did you use textile paint to screenprint on the tissue paper?

No, the screening was done with acrylic directly onto the tissue paper before collaging it. I really enjoyed making these and plan to experiment with other colors as well.
