The printmaking from scraps chapter continues from yesterday! Here, Alkema gets into more traditional print-making materials, before going on to recommend using a tin can for rolling a print onto a surface. Sounds good, but make sure you tape up the sharp edges inside or you might slice open a finger or five. Also, I assume his version of tissue paper is more like today's newsprint paper — sturdier than flimsy tissue, but still relatively lightweight.
I love this stuff. Lots of fun DIY Christmas gift ideas in here — for making cards and wrapping paper, but also for embellishing dish towels, placemats, tote bags and more.
