New shades of Mulberry Paper now Available!

Hello Friends!  We've received some lucious shades of mulberry paper on Tuesday.  I was so excited to see the quality and the color of these papers!  We have a new shade of Cream that will be replacing the "old stuff".  This "cream" is truly soft & creamy, making it so easy to work with!  I just had to play with it.  Of course I should have been doing other things.  Here is my example of a bear I created using the new "Cream" toned paper.
This example is up against our new shade of 165gms Mocha!  It's so hard to get the colors right in a photograph.  As you can see, the "fluff" is so much nicer.  All it took was some LIGHT strokes along the edges with our Fluff Me! Steel Brush.  I chalked him up a little with some Creamy Brown Fluid Chalk too.

Next I created a little bear with the new 165gsm Mocha Mulberry Paper.  This paper truly needs only one layer to achieve a lot of fluff.  You will want to wet this paper before you tear it - LOL.  Just take a look...
For this little guy, I used a different technique for fluffing.  Remember, he is only made with 1 layer of mulberry paper.  To make his fur somewhat curly, after I had him assembled, I took my water barrel brush and lightly dampened the edges.  I then took my Beary Creative Tear Bear Tool and "picked" at the fibers along the edge.  Finally, I allowed him to dry.  That was it.  Pretty neat, huh?

As for the color, it is similar to our current Dark Khaki shade, but much lighter.  I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this shade, but after making a few bears the other night, it's really grown on me.  I think it's my new favorite!

I'll try to get some samples of our new 165gsm Ginger Brown loaded in my next post.

  1. Thank you for the extra info. My bears and bunny just don't look fluffed. I was brushing the inside of the bear and bunny, so hopefully your tip of just fluffing the outside will do the trick. I just love all your patterns. Please do another bunny example, he is so adorable.

  2. Awe, thanks! I'm really trying to work on making a video tutorial on fluffing! I should have a photo tutorial up for the puppy, bunny, and chick in the upcoming days :)

  3. Kimm these colors are gorgeous and your bears and patterns are amazing! I am having a blast creating my tear critters and bears!!! :) Hoping to get them post to my blog soon!
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
