Mulberry Print

Mulberry paper can be used many different ways. The paper is not color fast and so makes some fantastic prints. This technique is easiest to apply on small projects such as Artist Trading Cards, but can be adapted to work with other sizes by overlapping edges or layering.

Cut a piece of mulberry paper slightly larger than paper to be printed. Place mulberry on top of solid paper. Dampen, but do not soak. Let dry, then pull two papers apart. There should be a pattern from the mulberry paper imprinted on the plain paper.

Now try making a negative print. Using temporary adhesive, affix object to paper. Try key, leaf, coins, etc. Then repeat procedure from above paragraph.

Try using two different colors of mulberry paper for variety.
