Paper Tole 2
Hmmm… OK, I admit it – Paper Tole 2 isn’t a very imaginative title for a post – but it is the only one I can think of for now 🙂
After all, it is my second post about Paper Tole – so it does fit 🙂
I learned to do Paper Tole, Oh, probably about 25 years ago. It was very popular at the time and I did enjoy it. For anyone who learnt Paper Tole, you will most likely me familiar with this little foursome. It is my understanding that there were a standard set of Paper Tole for beginners to ‘cut their teeth’ on.
Each of the images is only 2″ x 4″ (5cm x 10cm). Being this small, students were able to complete the assembly of the pieces within the class time. I remember taking the completed piece home and then getting to the framers ASAP to get it framed. The finished frame size is 9″ x 11″ (23cm x 28cm)
These 4 Paper Toles above and the Paper Toles show in my first Paper Tole post here is my total Paper Tole output.
Paper Tole teaches you some significant fine motor cutting skills. I also think it heightens your ability to see the way layers interact with each other. Oh, and patience, it certainly teaches you patience 🙂
