Experiment in Drawing
I tried experimenting with Kozo paper. I wanted to flattened "wrinkled" paper so that I would be able to draw on the textured surface. These are some of my experiments. I like the drawings much better unraveled. On the first one I flattened the surface with my bookpress overnight. The next day I ironed it flatter. I then drew with Stabilio Aquarelle. I think the results look much better than the original. The second drawing I did with pastel and conte. I also spritzed the folded paper before I ironed the wrinkle to as flat a surface as possible then i left it overnight under a litho stone.
