these are very interesting to me-- not familiar with cast paper -- but assume it is hand made paper cast into forms-- these are very appealing to me.

Oh my. They're wonderful. The first one especially feels tender, precious and yet dynamic.

layers...the paper I use is not handmade. It is cotton linter (which is good for paper casting because of its short fibres) and I soak it and make my own pulp for casting using a blender.

all...thanks for your kind comments!
