I ‘m enjoying reading your newsletter and Substack posts. Good stuff! I use a very similar process to make panels with Arches Oil Paper but I do it prior to creating the painting, usually 12” down to 8” squares. Curious why you risk damaging the painting by mounting it after it’s completed?❤️

Great question! I make a lot of things on paper, and a lot of them are experimental. A lot of them are almost automatic, so they are very spur of the moment. I don't use them all, ....just some of them. And the ones I save, I turn into panels. I've been having good luck with the gluing, and any errors I find I can fairly easily fix.

Well that makes sense. I often wish I had a book press😊

Thanks for sharing. I’ve been experimenting with stretching paper too. My approaches have been a little different but I like this approach and will give it a go. Glad to have found your substack (via your IG)!
