Fiona Dempster, a calligraphy and book artist in Queensland, kindly shared her recipe for rusting paper with me. I spent a day in the studio experimenting with a variety of papers, alternating the dipping sequence in the three different solutions.
The results were extremely varied, some very dramatic and others quite subtle.
Once dry I left some as they were, the others I combined papers or added a digital image I had taken of leaves falling.
