Paverpol Paper Mosaic 3D and 2D
The technique for this is to use a flat med-soft brush and work quickly on loose paper. You can tack the corners to hold in place but remove while wet to help reduce warping. Keep the Paverpol thin to brush easily. Mixing the beautiful colourarte pigments www.colourarte.com into the Paverpol gives beautiful mettalic iridescent colors to the paverpol. You can mix colors or layer colors to get interesting effects.
collect solids and get rid of them in the garbage.
When your pieces are dry thoroughly you can start cutting the paper tiles. You can cut them before you start your project or as you go along, or both. You paint a small area on your project with Paverpol and add your tiles at the "magic moment" which means as it feels tacky but not dry. It will become more clear as you go along. You will need to clean your hands and scissors frequently.
By leaving a small space between the paper tiles you have room to later add the "grout" which is just using a marker with a small tip of gray, sepia, or brick color allowing you to color the space between the tiles. A second way is to use a small plastic bottle with a pointed tip and mix any color you desire and squeeqe a thin line in the grout spaces.
