Did you Know? Your junk mail can be beautiful
Witness the transformation of discarded materials into stunning works of art. Tammy J McLain's upcycled masterpieces showcase the beauty of recycling and the power of creativity.
Every piece of artwork begins with the process of shredding and soaking junk mail overnight, followed by blending it into a paper smoothie. This paper smoothie is then placed in a large bin of water, from which I pull sheets of paper from the pulp. Some of these sheets are formed using frames, while others take on a more free form. Depending on the desired effect, I may fold and drape the paper or use it to capture the intricate details of a clay sculpture. To add vibrant colors to my creations, I utilize liquid watercolor, watered-down acrylic paints, or even homemade inks derived from blackberries. This unique artistic process allows for the transformation of discarded materials into beautiful, expressive pieces of art.
