collage on handmade recycled paper

21 cm / 8 in across


I collected paper scraps and blended them with water to make a pulp and then sift onto a screen, letting it dry into a paper. I also mixed in pieces of oil painted paper and golden plastic, so that the paper is speckled with purple and gold. Then while it was yet undried, I sprinkled the silver foil and placed the hand holding a cigarette.
