Blue Glass and Blue Paper
Yesterday, I made a batch of blue paper. It was blue tissue paper in the pulp bucket with a variety of other papers. I couched the paper, put it on a felt with fried tulip petals on the paper. The flecks you see are lavender tea. The small sheets had tulips, hyacinth, or cyclamen petals in them. The large sheets have wildflower seeds with not petals.
Sitting in the window was a sheet of dark blue glass. The paper turned out so nicely, I cut the blue glass. The results are on the paper.
This will be a pendant and earring set when I attached the findings.
With a sunny day, in the sixties, the glass just shone on the paper.
