Choosing Paper Type for Recycled Paper Art On behalf of TVLesson.com, my name is Sherie Tengbergen. I'm a professional artist with the WatercolorGourmet.com. In this clip about recycled paper art I'm going to talk about the kinds of paper that are really good to use in this particular project. And I have some great examples of this kind of paper and the kind of paper that I used on the table here. So let’s go through this slowly and I’ll explain to you what I like to use. First of all, any kind of old construction paper or paper that you might have used for wrapping or that your fish might be wrapped in is good. Save it, that can be used. The whiter the paper of course, the more ability you have to color the paper and make it looked different. This is all computer paper. When you print something in your printer and you don’t like what it says don’t throw it away, rip it up and make it into homemade paper. I also have old magazines. I like to take them and I just ripped out the pages and make them a little bit smaller. And then they go into my blender and they become a very nice paper because the ink on the paper actually colors the paper. Another thing when you wipe your hands with a piece of paper towel, save that. That also makes wonderful handmade paper. Magazines and newspapers, another part of that, all these things that you get in your newspaper and regular newspaper make really nice homemade paper. And it’s interesting that just regular newspaper instead of making a great paper actually it makes a pretty white, really nice, white paper and homemade paper. These are brown paper towels and napkins and I like to use scraps of tissue paper that I might get it in the gift that are all crumpled. They’re ripped and I really can’t use them anymore. Just a little bit of this paper will actually color your finish product. And of course the last thing is shredded paper. So let your imagination run wild. On behalf of TVLesson.com, this is Sherie Tengbergen and thank you for watching.
