French term or phrase: papier mouillé
Is this the same as papier mâché? I cannot find it in any of my references, and it's not in the GDT. Here is the context: "Il engage le peintre à suivre la nature et à repousser l'usage des modèles de papier mouillé..."

English translation:wet paper
Explanation:
This is just a fair guess - can't tell too much from the context given but is this what is meant? Wet paper is an art technique where wet paper (not the same as papier mache) is used to make models and also in paintings.

A favorite starting point for children (and adults) is wet paper painting. When you start with a wet paper.
The wet paper makes the paint flow very quickly over the paper. It forces you to be spontaneous. It
opens up the element of surprise and kids LOVE it.
