Recycling Paper Project
We attempted making new paper from old at this invitation: to pound/break down rubbish-soaked-in-water. Their trial and error and eventual results became the starting point for our paper-making project this week.
Key ingredient for the week: STARCH! Way to go to our expert paper-makers- so busy and so focused on their work. Our aim is to make the paper stronger and less brittle.
VV (4.9) and ZL (3.7) are attempting to remove ink and dye from old paper using soap and hot water to improve the quality of the pulp.
Some of our documentation- new paper from old.
