painting on hand made flower paper

While working at the “One of a kind show” I found one booth ” Hazeltree press & paper”  selling  hand-made paper made with actual flowers.

When I was in art school, I took classes in paper making so I understood the works it take to produce the hand made paper. At first, I only brought a sample pack for $15, the next morning i got up extra early to try out the paper and was happy with the result. it was a little like painting on sized rice paper.

the next day, I went back and brought more. here is one of the paintings on the flower, I like the result which look like botanical painting with the flower petals. the painting is about 8″x10″.
