The term “Tools” can be used to describe a lot of the made up concoctions I use to create a handmade paper painting.  In the photo above, I am using one of my favorite made up tools: an embroidery needle wedged into the eraser end of a number 2 pencil.  I use this tool to guide the pulp, usually over-beaten, into desired shapes and patterns.  For example, in the photo above, I am scratching into the surface of the painting newly applied over-beaten pulp that resembles waving reeds, the title of this particular painting, also shown complete 

in the photo on the right.
