Play with Metal Leaf

2020-07-30

When we talk about making original paper, you may think it's a bit of a challenge.

However, making colored paper can actually be easy and in a very fun way!

First, pick a color based on your mood for the day. Then, paint your favorite color or put on some colorful metal leaf. Wait until it dries, and this is how you create your own colored paper!




When most people think of the word "metal leaf," the first thing that crosses their mind are the stuffs that made from the past, such as old folding screens, Fusuma (Japanese sliding doors), religious paintings, etc. Metal leaf might even remind you the impression of high-class and elegant. However, metal leaf comes in a variety of colors and materials too. For example, blue or pink colored silver leaf.


Let's have some fun and make a collage with the paper you made at home!



A one-of-a-kind paper is born simply as you feel at the moment!






This time I'm using our metal leaf set, "Leaf Gift", which includes scraps of mineral pigments, metal leaf, and various kinds of handmade gold and silver paper.


* "Leaf Gift" gold/silver paper set are available at PIGMENT TOKYO store and on our official website.





These examples were created by using a quick and easy way that can be easily done by beginners.

Follow your current mood and enjoy the moment by creating your own unique set of combinations, colors and shapes.
