The end of the phone book is near. Both AT&T and Verizon have initiated plans to stop delivering the white pages in several states.
Friends, the phone book is a valuable Art Supply! Build a stash for the future.
So how does one use a phone book in an art studio, you ask? Here's my list:
1. As a gluing station. Tear off the cover. Place the item to which you'll apply glue on top of the phone book and apply the glue. Tear off the page and toss it. Repeat. You'll never again get glue on the surface of a paper or photo.
Tear off a 1/2 inch hunk of paper and pack with your traveling art supplies.
2. As collage ephemera. Use a strip of numbers or names in your collage work.
3. To clean your paint brush. And then use the painted paper in collage. Or toss it.
4. Use as a pad when attaching grommets or rivets.
