Homemade Paper by DarkAlaria69 Homemade Paper by DarkAlaria69
If I get enough interest I'm thinking about selling some homemade paper. It would be totally up to you what's in it/ what color it is/what size it is.

All paper will be made from recycled paper.

For this piece of paper, (my first try!) it has a pink tint to it due to adding red construction paper. I made the paper with coffee but it doesn't really smell like coffee at all if that's a concern. I used different flower petals and different plants to add as accents (this paper is a bit thin but if you want it this thin, with the plants showing etc I can do that).

To show you waht can be used on the paper I tried a few different things there is a list on the file but here it is again in case you can't read it. (sorry for any typos)

1- Undiluted Oil Paint- No bleed through
2- Oil Paint Diluted with Turpentine- Slight bleed through
3- Acrylic Paint - No bleed through
4- Water Color Pencil with Water - Pulls up paper slightly, No bleed through
5- Watercolor diluted with Water - Pulls up paper slightly, Slight bleed through
6- Undiluted Watercolor- No bleed through
7- Chalk Pastel Pencil - Pulls up paper slightly, No bleed through
8- Chalk Pastel - No bleed through, hard to blend without pulling up paper
9- Picture from a Magazine Glued with Rubber Cement - Holds on tigh
10- Thick Black Sharpie - Slight bleed through if pressing too hard
11- Black pen - Doesn’t cover well
12- Black pen 2 - .Good coverage, No pulling of paper or bleed through
13- Fine Point Sharpie - Pulls up paper, No bleed through
14- Colored Pencil - Slightly pulls up paper
15- Gel Pen - Covers well, No pulling of paper. My favorite kind of pen to use
16- Paint pen - Slight pull up of paper, Slight bleed through
17- Crayon- No pulling of paper

if you're interested in buying any or have any questions regarding purchasing the paper please let me know ^_^

Well... the only thing I could think to use it for is wedding invitations and it's too late for those. So, don't really know what I would do it.
Besides, shipping it to Europe would probably cost more than the paper itself xD

shipping is about 10-15 bucks to europe i think.
and that's sad, if you think of anything else i might be able to make a deal with you ^_^
