Handmade Paper Rainbows

Original handmade paper rainbows by Artist Deb McNaughton

Turning business admin waste into whimsical, recycled handmade paper works of art – giving them new life and new purpose. 

Each original piece of paper is created over a lengthy process in the studio. First, admin waste is shredded, soaked and blended into pulp. Next, a mould and deckle is used to make individual sheets of paper, sometimes taking up to a week to fully dry. 

The paper is then hand painted to create unique one-of-a-kind rainbows to represent new life and new purpose. Although individually different in appearance, each rainbow is adorned with hints of gold to represent luck and good fortune.

Paper is naturally rippled due to the organic drying process and have rough, deckled edges.
