pulp





























































































Eb gave me a mold and a couple of deckles to make my own recycled paper. Very exciting! It is a such an enjoyable process and i can see that the experimentation will be endless. Above is my very first sheet, still needing a final press and dry. Next time I have to make a lot more pulp. Before it had been couched, this piece looked like a vaguely rectangular portion of rolled out dog food, yummy.
