This is kind of related to this thread:
I tried making my first sheets of paper recently. I was really happy with them - they were mixed tissue-paper pulp and marigold petals, pulped with a handmixer. I left them to dry for two days, pressed beteen a glass chopping board I'd bought, and my old waterpainting backboard, with some heavy books on top.
Everything was hunky-dory, but when I pulled the paper out and left it to airdry the last bit it all curled up on me!
The paper was way too thick to iron (and by that time too dry; it would have cracked). I guess I'm more curious as to what made it do that, and if anyone could give me any tips to stop it from happening again?
Was my pulp too thick? Not thick enough? Should I have pressed it longer than 48 hours?
