How I make handmade paper — 5 Comments

  1. Love your process its so rhythmic and the results are beautiful. My paper making days are behind me (I think) but I used the scoop method which does not always give a useable thickness and the sheets need to be re-cycled once again.
    Keep smiling

  2. Thanks for reading Rhonda! Glad you enjoyed the post. Yes, I started out using the dip/scoop method but like you, found that it was too hard getting consistent thickness in the paper, and I quickly switched to the hand-pour method once I discovered it. It saves me a lot of time and I have no paper pulp leftover as wastage which is good 🙂

  3. I found that very interesting. Thank you for sharing the process. I now have a better understanding of how time consuming the art of paper making is. Well done. 😀

    • Thanks Fernie, glad you enjoyed it! Yes, it is very time consuming, but so rewarding to create something new and usable from scraps.

  4. This was interesting, to read about your process. Makes the papers even more valuable Dyani. Thanks for letting us take a peek into your studio 🙂
