I had a selection of japenese paper, ( mixed in with my origami papers.Some had flecks in ( like the handmade papers you can buy) I think it is called yushi. Also some bamboo,some shiraccaba, masa, hosho and kozo.
I decided to paint watercolour on them, mainly because I had no idea of what else to use them for, I decided it was better than binning them. After I made a complete mess, I left them to dry. I think they took to the watercolour remarkably well, after dry I decided to paint on one, of course a hare.
