how to proceed question
I have a quick question for a handmade book project (sorry, no pics yet) that I am working on, and I need some help with my next step. I have been been researching and doing a lot of source and material gathering for this project (as you can probably guess from the main "entry") for quite a while, and I don't want to mess up on a critical step or two.
Anyways, please help me figure out which order these steps should be in:
→ stretch watercolor paper
→ stain with tea and flatten the paper
→ punch the holes
→ draw and paint images, etc.
→ bind into the book
I am also wondering the following:
1. Do I need to stretch the watercolor paper if I am going to tea stain them?
2. Does it matter if I paint the images first or punch the holes first?
Any information and advice would be loved! ♥
