The texture paper for Neverdull

Mixed Media Art Questions for Milliande

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I saw you and your daughter use Never Dull.

In the video you two worked on a couple of magazine pages on top of a white textured big paper.

In the USA texture papers are expensive enough that we could not afford to waste a page and the pages are small.

Please tell me where you get your texture paper from. Maybe I can order some online.

Thank You both, Rita

Hi Rita :-)

The textured paper we played with in the Neverdull video was infact wallpaper / wall covering.

These kinds of textured wallpapers come in all kinds of patterns and shaped textures, from more abstract designs like lines, dots and square patterns to more intricate floral designs and decorative patterns.

Here textured wallpapers are often used when there are walls that are uneven as the patterns tend to stick out and play over the uneven bits .

That makes them suitable for the rubbing texture technique as they are quite pronounced pattern that resist a bit of pressure well so that the pattern is easily transferred with the neverdull ..or in case of the rubbing down technique from magazines the color is taken away from the pattern texture bits that produde out from the wall covering paper ..


Here in the UK we can buy plain non-colored textured wallpaper that is meant to be painted upon once it is adhered to the wall .. so for the neverdull transfer rubbing technique it is ideal as there is no other color interfering with the process ..

Hope this helps
...milliande

textured paper
by: Janeen Duer

My mom used to use textured wallpapers in her art work all the time. She used to pick up old wallpaper books and discontinued wallpaper rolls from decorating shops and do-it-yourself sections of hardware stores and such all the time. She used to grab some really wild ones from yards sales and stuff too.

I used to make my own textured paper by embossing scrapbook papers with stamps and embossing powder. I'd pick one color of powder, a bunch of papers that I thought would look good with the color and just stamp and emboss myself silly. I used to have a woman that made cards who would actually have me make some for her for card making. I was doing scrapbook collage (didn't use any wet glues. paints, or glazes) only stamp pads to add to my decorated papers. I also found finding plain white textured papers in the scrapbook section fun to color with stamp pads and embossing powder too. The batches were small, but lots of fun.
