Engraving with… Recycled paper is a process of learning about recycling and using cellulosic fibers from used paper and cardboard to produce new paper.
The objective is to expand the universe of printing support, in a logic of experimentation using recycled materials. The objective is to demonstrate how this recycling technique is capable of expanding the plastic expression of the sheet of paper. We also intend to explore the creativity of each leaf through: weight, size, texture, pigment and shape.
