why someone invented swear words and foul language, and that reason must be chine colle..... if you have ever tried, I bet you agree..... it must be like golf, you get hooked, and wonder why for ever more.... too much glue, paper to thin, paper to thick, too little glue, paper colors!! (that was a new one) paper buckles, probably due to too much or too little glue, paper rips as you try and handle the soggy gluey blooming (told you) ricepaper and then WOW, you get a perfect print!! One out of the 12 you have struggled with the whole morning, wasting, I am sure, at least a small tree in the process...aaaaarrrggghhhhhh... and yet... hooked, because when it works, it is so beautiful, so fun, makes you a total and utter paper nutter (yes, I am, I confess) and so worth it.... but swearing, hey, I could not do it if it was not allowed!
Now, is there a point here... oh yes, that's right, does anyone have a tip on a good article or book on chine colle, with lots of photos of how to, because maybe I need a hand, maybe I am not doing it right... or, is this the reason you don't see a lot of chine colle.. I mean, yes, you see a lot where the whole print is done chine colle, but not much where only parts is done, or if you have, please... send me a link! I'd love to get better at it.....hmmm... now, where's my buggy!!
