How my art is made
These are the tools I use to create my paper cut art. I use a cutting knife manufactured by NT-Cutter to handcut the details. Large cutout parts are sometimes cut with Cricut machine. The tiny circles you see in my work are handcut with circle cutting knives (Read more about them on my blog here). They are made for traditional Japanese stencil textiles, the craft which inspired me to start making paper cuts. I add new approaches, such as magazine page collage and encaustic to this technique to express my own voice. The tapes I use to make the collage part are acid-free double sided tapes. I use a custom-ordered stamp of the Chinese character taken from my name as my signature.
The paper I use is all acid-free, archival quality, including: Fabriano Ecological Artist Paper (sustainably made with hydro power & 100% recycled), Japanese washi paper such as Awagami Bamboo Paper (read more about it on my blog here), and Shiramine paper. Read more about paper here 1, and 2.
