This is Papyrus

I got it here.

Spent some time today playing with it and finding out how nice it is to use.    Main image, Creative Expressions, stamped in Archival Ink and coloured with watercolour pencils.   Using a water brush to blend them out worked as it would on any other paper.    Found that it does not tear but is perfectly fine to cut with scissors.

Using a sakura glue pen some gilding flakes completed colouring the image.   The frieze at the top is a Tanda stamp with WOW ultra fine ep.   Heating it was a little tricky, hold the heat gun to close and the paper starts to bubble.    The cartouche at the bottom stamped in Memento and coloured with Pro Markers did not present any problems either.

So another page for my book and an interesting material to work with.

Don't think there are any challenges that this fits so I'll share it with you all.


  1. this looks brilliant Hun,great colouring and love the image hugs Cherylxxxxx

  2. Oh, I found some papyrus the other day (I'm in the middle of a major sort out) so this is interesting, Zoe - I wouldn't have dared use Promarkers on it but now I just might, lol x

  10. Zoe this looks like an original from a mummies tomb !!! Very interesting and clever work like the sound of the glue pen. Papyrus is new too me don't think I will ever catch up.


  11. Really unique! Next thing you'll be making your own paper I bet.

  12. I love that paper Zoe, at one time I had a small piece, used it all up and haven't seen any around here since!
    Looks awesome with your Egyptian theme!
