Paper Lips, hand-folded from a square of watercolour paper.
The paper sculpture is created by easing curved folds into a sheet of dampened watercolour paper. As it dries, the sculpture stiffens and its new form is captured.
This sculpture has been pressed over a positive and also a negative form so that repeat versions can be achieved. Each sculpture has its own subtle variation as it is also finished and sculpted by hand.

Exciting collaboration with @jennertomaska Paper plates for his gastronomic delights I've worked out a way to reproduce the folds. I still need to tweak and work on each one individually but the general structure and character is captured #paperlips #lips #origamilips #kiss #origami #paper #paperart #kiss #papersculpture #paperart #paperplate #wetfold #wetfoldingorigami #wetfolding #paperlicious #kissable
