greeting card „door“, 10,5 x 15 cm, toddles from cotton, envelope matching colour, C6, from handmade lokta paper with silkscreen print, in: 13 orange/ pumpkin, 22 red/ magenta, 47 blue ocean/ emerald green, 52 young green/ malachite
Lokta can be used with nearly any pencil (Marker, pencil, pen). Ink can lead to a little difused look, but only very little. Our papers are made from the bark of a special mulberry bush. The branches of the bush are being harvested and the bark is peeled off. Within the coming 3-5 years the bush will regrow. The bark is then beaten and cooked until it becomes smooth. This pulp will be “dissolved“ in a large water tank into which the screen is placed. The screen is slowly removed from the water – the sheet is ready – it will be dried by having the screen exposed to sun light.
