"Collage is an artistic composition of materials and objects gathered from everyday life"
The word Collage comes from the French language, "Coller" meaning, to glue. In the early 1900"s Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque glued scraps of printed paper to their canvas and charcoal drawings. This new technique brought a texture and material other than paint to the surface, which has evolved into what we know as collage today.
Paper casting is fun, inexpensive and easy to do. Just mix cotton sheets in the blender, press pulp into the mold then dry and enjoy.
Many existing products and found objects can be used for paper casting. Such as clay stamps and metal cookie cutters, candle and plaster molds, butter and chocolate molds, or make your own in clay (Fimo) and plaster.
