Playing With Paper.

Just a short post on papermaking which I have only done  this year with my friends and another lady wanted to try it so I borrowed the kit and we played with it this week.
The old lino plate on the left, as I am a deep cutter I thought to try it with papermaking. I placed the plate onto the screen before immersing into the tub and when lifted out and draining blotted with a towel pushing the pulp into the grooves.

Detail and might have shown better on plain coloured paper.

Ideas grow as you work so placed wool and a feather on another sheet while still damp with a cloth over the top and ironed it.

This is the other side of the ironed sheet showing the marks from the ironing board.
