Paste paper is a grown-up relative of grade-school finger painting. Designs are made by brushing colored paste on a dampened paper and making images using various tools. Maurer-Mathison (Art of the Scrapbook) presents a series of practice exercises and several step-by-step projects for turning the simple paste paper into a work of art. Combs, stamps, carved rollers, and multicolored under-painting make each paste paper unique and ready to be used as raw material for book covers and other decorative items. This is a fairly simple craft that will appeal to public and school library users.
