Tea Papers

For hundreds of years wallpapers were made from hand pieced rectangles of paper that were glued together to create panels for applying to plaster walls for decoration.  These panels were painted with colorful designs and eventually developed into Chinoiserie wallpaper that are still beloved today.  We use these base papers for our hand-painted murals, but we also offer the plain versions, as they are very beautiful and have a wide range of uses. 

We create these panels by hand and offer various techniques and effects to meet a wide range of applications.  The effect can range from rustic and antiqued through sleek modern metal leaf types.  They can be distressed or coated with urethane for glossy effects, made of crackled silk rectangles, glazed and made of various types of papers including some embedded with gold flecks, fibers, and textures.  They are always one-of-a-kind and can be applied to walls and ceilings.  They can be coated with urethane for extra protection.  

We’ll craft these panels based on your color requirements and concepts.  We offer a few examples here for inspiration.  Send us your colors and ideas and we’ll create a sample for $190.00, (size 2’ x 3’, 67cm x 91cm).  Full panels measure 36” wide (91cm) x standard heights.  Panel prices are available to Trade Professionals.
