Painted Paper Towels: A Tutorial

I have been tossing about the idea of making a few tutorials that cover how I make the components of my mixed-media art . . . and this is the first.

In collage projects, I use painted-and-dried paper towels for texture as well as a way to add saturated color to a work. Through my flickr account, I created a little photo walk-through of the process. You can find it here.

I am going to go out on a technological limb this week and try to do something with a video camera and see if I am capable of creating a YouTube tutorial, too. I'm not promising anything, as I'm pretty easily frustrated with such nonsense.


  1. Great tutorial! I would definitely love to see more from you. Your work is awesome.

  2. Great little tute, I might have to give it a try when I have some spare time.

  3. thanks! i'm so glad, kati! i believe that a version of the technique was originated by bernie berlin . . . but i learned thru word-of-mouth and this is my own take on it.
