Making Magic Windows
Creating Papel Picado/Cut-Paper Art
Following the hands-on format of Carmen Lomas Garza's highly successful papel picado workshops, this book shows, step by step, how to create beautiful designs and banners by simply folding and cutting tissue paper.
Projects you will learn to make include: the Four Cardinal Points, a design reminiscent of the four points of a compass; Tiles, echoing the colorful hand-painted tiles that decorate many Mexican buildings; and The Fan, one of Carmen's favorite designs, featuring leaves, hummingbirds, and flowers. For more advanced students there is a section on using a craft knife safely, and a sample Sunburst project to create.
