Making paper

At the bookbinding tradeshow, there was an energetic Japanese man (who lives in the Netherlands) who was giving workshops/demonstrations of his own paper-making apparatus. We joined in and learned how we could make paper from empty milk cartons. His device was pretty cheap and workable, and making paper is something that was on the list of things I wanted to learn/be able to do anyway. So I bought an A5 version of it. We have been making some papers since then!

The two frames, with paper-pulp already poured in and the water already drained. Now all that is left is to squeeze out the water, and the paper will be done!

By using different materials and combining different colors, you can get different textures and colors. These nine are from the first batch we made -- but today klik has doubled this.
