Chapter 4 Papermaking

My first try at Papermaking. They aren't very big mostly between 4-6 inches.

Threads embedded in pulp

End of pen pressed into pulp while damp

Negative letter in pulp

Rug canvas embedded in pulp

Rug canvas embedded in pulp then removed

Stamp pushed in to pulp

Spiral stamp pushed into pulp

Back of paper with spiral stamp gives different look

Flower stamp pushed into pulp

Back of paper with flower stamp gives different look

NB I'll make more samples once I make more pulp and try to be more experimental.

I love your paper designs, these are great. Is it hard to make? I'm doing my C&G with a different school, and all distant learning .... they've not included paper making in any of the modules. Can you sew into it?
