A while back (years), I bought a sheet of terraskin paper and never got around to try it. This is paper made of finely ground stone and should be suitable for all media. Given that It does not tear, it should work fine for collage,
For the first experiment, I started with washes of diluted acrylic paint and then I added more acrylic, collage, ink. I think the main difference I noticed is that it is hard to have opaque shapes, even when using opaque pigment. In the end I decided to use collage to achieve the degree of opacity I was looking for. Other than this, the paint dries relatively fast and if does not lift.
This paper has potential. once one becomes used to it. I don;t see it used in signatures though because it is hard to fold.
What do you think? Have you ever used it and did you like it?
Thanks for reading!
