201  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: jackson pollack-ish wrapping paper on: September 18, 2006 06:58:23 AM
thanks guys. i gave him the presents last night. he loved the paper. he did open it very carefully and actually saved some of it.

LOVE it!  I hope your bf does, too!  What kind of paper did you use??  Just curious what could hold the paint, but also be easy enough to use for wrapping.
     i used some white paper i found in the wrapping paper section but it is alot thicker than regular wrapping paper.  but not quite as thick as the brown craft paper. it worked well.

Did you make a mess while doing this? I know when I was painting for a art show in high school I used this technique for a background and all I heard from my teacher for weeks was what a mess I made!

It looks awesome though...oh, and originally being from NYC I have to say the Met rocks.

it was pretty messy. i started out inside on a folding table but ended up moving outside to the driveway.

thanks. its just watered down acrylic and tempura paints. i used a one inch stiff bristle brush for the black and just let it drip or sorta flung(is that a word?) the paint and it made lines of little dots.

i needed some wrapping paper for my boyfriends birthday and didnt like any of the choices at walmart. (i live in a very small town.) so i decided to get white and make my own.  since i just got back from new york where we saw some great pollacks at the Met i came up with this. so much fun to make.

im not sure about the hand scrubbing but i did mine in the washer twice and they never really felted. the mohair just got real fuzzy.
