I have worked with the paste, paint and syringe before and had no idea how to use the paper sheet form of PMC.
I have tried some origami first in paper, but was not so thrilled about the results. The paper form of PMC is more flexible than real paper; it is different to the touch.
Material inspires me as I work with it. That is when I start to have a clear picture in my mind about what shape it will take.
Quilling and weaving are my favorite ways in handling paper PMC.
