I've recently become addicted to handmaking paper - it's just so awesome! But i'm not sure how to make it really thin... you know, like the paper that comes from nepal that i guess is made out of some kind of reed? I'm going for that thin sort, but the stuff i make always comes out pretty thick. Any ideas? And does anyone else make paper? I'd love to see some pictures!
I really want to try to make some, I think I threw out my small paper bits stash though!! eek
you hang on to it and then decide to part with it (not just paper) and then you finally need it! I just did that with a load of cardboard I was gonna make handmade paper for my harry potter prequel book but didn't think it would make it through the printer.
yea, I used to make paper LIKE CRAZY, I loved it. And I wanted to make thin paper as well, and I never got like, printer paper thin, but what I would do to make it as thing as I could, I used this weight I had, it was a little bigger than paper, and I just put that onto the wet shreds.
BUTyou know whats fun, putting differnt herbs and smells in it!!!
I had this orange citrusy smelling hair gel that my little cousin left, and I put a BUNCH of that into this huge batch of the pulp to be paper, and it was awesome!
AND, I even sometimes put leaves and sticks all ground up into it. Its fun
I love the idea of putting leaves and stuff in! My friend bought me this cool little journal from Nepal and the paper is so beautiful, I don't want to use it!
