Coloring on Japanese Tissue

0

Hi Sophia

I’m getting ready to post some pics of the “Hi! Ho! Pinocchio” jacket I’ve been working on. When I’ve been posting on FB I’ve been describing the steps I take. (Mainly for my mom who is very interested and also I used the Christmas money she gave me to buy the tissue and endleaf papers!)  Now I used Japanese tissue to repair some of the many rips and also to connect the four pieces of the jacket. Most of it doesn’t show )or I trimmed it off) but the were two small areas where it showed and the area was too delicate to trim. In those spots I colored the tissue with pencils and then carefully rubbed it with wax paper. Would you consider that sound from an archival point of view? I ask as I mention that I learned my techniques from  you (unfortunately FB doesn’t let me tag Save Your Books like Insta does) so if that doesn’t sound appropriately archival to you, I’d specifically mention that step was my own idea and not something I learned here.

Thanks again! 😊

Anil

    And like, I know it doesn't look great but man even getting it to this point was a lot of work. Some of the wrinkles just have been there for decades and I didn't want to worry the paper too much. Hopefully they'll smooth out naturally over time now that the jacket is in the proper position.

    For reference, this was when I was just starting. I literally had this jacket under heavy weights for months I figured out what to do.

      Hi Sophia

      Any thoughts on this one? I’m wondering if I should have done some color correction on the white ripped edges as well or color Japanese tissue and put it over them? Or just leave as-is? I don’t want it to look too arts and crafts, especially given my beginner skill level lol.

        Hi Anil. I think to #Save Your Books on Facebook that you have to use @saveyourbooks. I think you were wise to leave the white edge uncolored. Less is more especially with dust jackets. I think it looks pretty darn good!

          Hi Sophia

          I did try that but it didn't seem to work for me. But here's the album I made, this one took a lot of time but was fun to learn. I definitely still need a lot of work on using the nori paste and tissue paper though!
