I spent this past weekend making viscose paper. The most difficult thing about making it is the laying out only because it can be time consuming if you are making large sheets, which I did. I made mine with just soap and water, but you can use sugar water, cornstarch, and other things. Soap and water is easy. You just need to use a lot of soap.
Look at all the pretty colors. I have been using viscose in a lot of my felts recently as you can make a nice, flexible item with a bit of texture and shine. I have been adding it to the inside of hats to help with the itch factor. By using viscose paper, you can cut out designs that will keep the crisp edges. I have been wanting to make some art pieces and get a bit more creative when laying out scarves and hats, so the paper will be really useful. These are dry and will last a long time, but you can use the paper when it is still damp, which is a good thing if you run out of a color and need more and don’t want to wait. A hair dryer will help speed up the process. 🙂
