FroyleArt's Favorite Kozo Papers

FroyleArt's artistic journey is intricately woven with Kozo Studio's papers. She has been extensively using our papers long before we even launched our own brand! Her favorites include:

    Handmade Rose Kozo Paper: FroyleArt has a deep affection for Handmade Rose Paper, especially when it comes in white, black, and red. She uses these exquisite papers to adorn her canvas, allowing her artistic vision to flourish. The white mulberry paper serves as an ideal foundation for her creative color sprays, adding a touch of imagination to her work.

      The focal point of Froyle's artwork frequently revolves around the circular form of Handmade Rose Kozo Paper pulp, with this shape often serving as a powerful representation of unity and completeness.

      Handmade Beehive Kozo Paper: The Beehive Paper, available in black & white, also holds a special place in her heart. Its abstract pattern and aesthetic appeal complement her mixed media creations seamlessly.

      Handmade Lace Paper: Another standout choice is the Handmade Lace Paper, especially Polkadot Pattern, adding a touch of elegance and intricacy to her artworks. This mulberry paper is crafted frame by frame using a very unique technique called "Rakusui" or  droping water to displace the pulp, resulting in delicately intricate designs.

      Asarakusui Lace Paper: The Asarakusui Lace Paper in natural, black, & red. This unique paper is made from mulberry pulp and Abaca (Manila Hemp) by using the same ‘Rakusui’ technique. Asarakusui lends its special texture and enhance the depth of her works.

        The Asarakusui paper's slightly textured surface and its translucent characteristics provide a distinctive tactile experience to the artwork.
        Milano Kozo: Milano Kozo is a stunningly beautiful marble paper that is created through a truly unique process. The paper is handcrafted by floating a kozo paper on top of swirling oil colors and hand-marbled piece by piece, resulting in a soft, crinkle, and fabric-like texture. This versatile paper is perfect for various art and crafting projects, and can even be used as decorative pieces on its own.

        The Power of Art for Self-Discovery

        Froyle has a thriving YouTube community and offers a Skillshare course where she demonstrates how effortlessly one can craft magnificent art that resonates with personal passion.

        What sets Froyle apart is her commitment to empowering others through art. She firmly believes that creativity has the power to transform lives, instilling confidence and fostering a positive self-view. Her classes are not just about technique; they are a journey of self-discovery, allowing participants to tap into their innate creativity.

        In her studio, she employs water-based materials, acrylic paint, iridescent inks, and, of course, a wide array of papers, including Kozo Studio's mulberry papers. Above all, her videos are fun-filled, promising a wealth of knowledge and an exciting exploration of self.
