greeting card baby chart collage, 15 x 10,5 cm, inside natural, envelope C6, from handmade lokta paper with silkscreen print, in: 02 natural/ light magenta, 02B natural/ turquoise, 29 rose colour/ light magenta, 401 placid blue/ natural
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.
