Corn Husk Paper

Four ears of corn yielded two strong sheets with sizing added to the pulp, so it will take ink and paint with no blotting or feathering effect. It's not exceptionally pretty, but it's so traditional that I love it. I could see pages in a handmade book or journal like this, but mine may become backgrounds for small works of art.

Wow, it made a pretty paper. I would not have imagined this result. I think it will make great backgrounds for artwork.

I find it very pretty, Barbara. It has movement and texture and the frayed edges are fabulous.
