Dear Curt,
I have recently wrote a lesson plan on paper making, and colored paper
making. The supplies that you need would be a blender, shredded cotton
paper, screen, wood or duck tape for the frames of the screen, acrylic
paints, felt and a few heavy books to drain the excess liquid. Water will
also be very essential. The procedures are to put the shredded paper into
the blender with water and create pulp. At this time if you want the paper
to be colored you would add acrylic paint. Pour the pulped colored liquid
into a bucket and continue until the bucket is filled. Make sure that the
container in which the pulped liquid goes is big enough to fit the screen.
After the container is filled have the students dip there wood framed
screens, or duck taped screens into the mixture and move is front and back
to cover the screen with the substance. Drain the screen and lay it between
two pieces of felt to suck up the excess water, and apply pressure with the
heavy books to drain. Peel off the screen and let air dry. If my memory
serves me correctly this is how to make paper. There are several different
methods, and books that you could find. If antone has anything to add to my
procedures please do, and correct me if anything is wrong. I tried to do it
the easier, more economical way.
