381  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Baby papermaker whose paper refuses to dry flat on: January 23, 2006 04:16:38 AM
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?

It's actually a wig I bought her Wink
The model was my then-housemate. Her hair WAS that colour - only with purple tips - but that was a few months previous. By this stage I think she'd gone back to smurf blue.

Well, just the one of them, inspired by a Charles deLint story:

I photoshopped the hair in this one, since it and the vest were two very different pinks - the original on my deviantart account looks a little strange, because it's unedited.

I love the "flip" at the end of the silver one, and the fabric on that last is amazing!

How bout fascinators, Pudruff? (those beaded hair comb thingies women wear instead of hats to the races - too big to just be combs, usually have feathers and stuff on them)
Decorated pencils - I'm getting the giggles thinking about pink fluffy-tipped pens a la Reece Witherspoon in Legally Blonde, only black pvc with black and silver glittery feathers!
A makeup case or jewellery box, all 'gothed up'...

Too many ideas, not enough nous to be able to actually pull them off!

(Ha, I am such a square... my first thought was... you could print on a camera bag? WOAH! ROFLMAO)
