The process of handmade paper, which is the dipping and application of a wet pulp of pigmented cotton or other plant fibers, is considered the medium of these pieces in the same sense that watercolor, oil or pencil would be considered a medium that an artist chooses for his or her work. All of the color is applied wet using pigmented cotton fibers. The irregular feathered edges which follow the contours of the images are unique to the medium of handmade paper.
