Making Flemish Lid Papers-2



The paper can be lifted to see how things are progressing. When it is evenly covered, the paper is hung up to dry on a string line with tape.





After it dries overnight, the paper is then trimmed to the edges. The lid is then marked out for the papers. The first piece to go on is the lower left corner, glued with normal wallpaper glue. When it is wet, it also expands in size.

The sections are then built up until the lid is covered. The edges are trimmed for the curve in the bentside as you go along from front to back.
