Painted Tyvek Japanese Book

Tyvek Japanese Book 052609Tyvek is a vapor barrier house wrap used in construction.  It is also used to make those sturdy white mailing envelopes.  One day, someone thought to paint it and use it as an art ground.  This five hole, side bound, Japanese style binding is made with acrylic painted Tyvek laminated in three layers.  The other side is painted as well.  It is a durable material as a cover on it’s own.  The colors are vibrant and lots of techniques can be done on this paper.  I am sure I will play with this again.
