- Tear the paper up into small pieces
- Put the paper into the blender along with warm water (do not overload)
- Turn on the blender slowly and increase the speed gradually until the pulp looks smooth.
- Once blended pour pulp into a bath big enough for the size of screen you wish to use.
- Wet some J-clothes and a towel and rinse out
- Place Towel on the table and a J-cloth on top
- Immerse the frame into the mixture in a slow motion moving through the bath (in, under, up)
- Jiggle the frame gently to remove any excess pulp
- Hover the frame over the J-cloth and when ready turn the frame over so it lays flat on the table.
- With a sponge, drain any excess pulp by pressing gently on the frame
- Remove the frame to reveal the paper
- Leave to dry
Some ways to make the paper thicker are:
- Using a decol over the top of the frame
- Mixing wallpaper paste or flour to make the solution thicker
- Layering the papers on top of each other when wet
- Adding different materials to the paper or between two papers
You can also:
- Create textures by adding various materials to the paper mix
- Change the colour of the paper by adding dyes to the solution
