168  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Handmade paper..how does one do it!? on: November 17, 2004 06:54:01 AM
u will need: jay cloths
                wire mesh
                washing up bowl
                paper to pulp
                food mixer/ blender
                (u dont need any glue!)
this is what i do...i luv makin paper-always doin it at uni (im doin textiles im not just some random who makes my own paper during lectures! lol)
1/take your paper(plain/newspaper-which i luv cos it goes ded pale grey and has a nice finish) u want to use
2/shred it
3/cut the shreds in to smaller pieces...approx 1 inch long
4/roughly pulp in blender/food mixer
5/little by little blend/whizz again this time with more water-til fine pulp is achieved
6/put pulp in washing up bowl full with water (plenty of)
7/get a wire mesh net thing...only has to be about A5 size (u can get it in art/craft shops or in uni we hav special mesh that gets used in car doors...but i use regular mesh at home and its the same...alternatively rob some from a car door!)
8/get jay cloths...lay down on surface
9/put net in bowl scooping a fine layer of paper pulp
10/flip mesh over and lay on jay cloth (pulp side down)
11/get another jay cloth and press down on top of mesh (squeeze as much water away as possible)
12/lift mesh...ur paper layer will stay put as long as uve squeezed enuff water out
13/repeat...to build up layers...u can make it dead fine or really heavy
14/leave to dry-when dry peel off jay cloth and hey presto a piece of handmade paper!

*try trapping things in...threads, coloured tissue paper(which bleeds out and makes a nice effect), etc etc...u can also press things in to get a textured effect...bottle tops, coins etc
