Silk paper-making takes the beautiful individual fibers of silk, adds a suitable adhesive, and creates a lovely new material. The richness of the fibers gives the papers a unique and luxurious texture that encourages a wide variety of applications. Following an introduction to the craft and the materials needed to pursue it, Silk Paper explores the marvelous range of silk fibers available, then shows you how to turn them into sheets of "paper." Four chapters of projects offer stunning ideas on how the silk papers can be used. Lavish color photos, along with clear, sequential instructions, make this book an ideal starting point for this new and exciting craft.
