Hmm, I just made some pulp to try some crazy paper making adventures, but while reading these instructions they talk about using the mold and deckle, I don't understand why you need the second; couldn't you just use the one with the mesh in it?
Oh! And for the mesh one (I assume this one is the deckle??) When they talk about using a 'fine mesh-nylon netting' could I use the nylon pantyhose are made out of?
Oh dear, so confused....

I haven't made paper since mid-elementary school 10 years ago, but from what I remember, you want something with more... structure than nylon pantyhose.
Pulp is pretty heavy stuff when wet, and pantyhose are very stretchy -- it would end up sagging, and the holes are so tiny that I think they wouldn't let that much water through.

Try going to a hardware store and finding that flexible mesh used as window screens (I think it comes in either plastic/nylon or metal...) Even the metal ones shouldn't rust, since they're used outdoors and I've yet to see a rusty screen door.

Those are so cute. Do you think you could do a tutorial on how you decorated the covers? Did you just draw the bunnies? I would love to know how to make the one (cover decoration) on the far bottom right!
