May. 5th, 2010 @ 10:18 pm Making paper
Current Mood: calmcalm
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.

Dit is weer een leuke nieuwe techniek die jullie geleerd hebben. Wat ga je met het papier doen? Is het zo dik, dat je het als kaft kunt gebruiken, of is het daarvoor te dun?

We zouden het als kaft kunnen gebruiken, maar daar is het denk ik niet flexibel genoeg voor. Maar als schutblad zou wel kunnen. Of als papier voor in een (kleurig) boekje!
