I've also had some excellent results using straight methyl cell, methyl
cell-PVA mix, and straight PVA as the base for paste papers. The
straight methyl cell gives a rougher texture, the straight PVA gives a
very slick finish. For color I've used acrylic paints and/or the Hewitt
analine dyes. Depending on the quality and sizing of the paper, the dyes
will penetrate and cause a layering effect that can be very appealing.
Have a good Thanksgiving!
