>Greetings MaryJane and all,
>
>Here is a pdf file for instructions for making handmade paper:
>http://www.dnr.state.wi.us/org/caer/ce/eek/teacher/pdf/16-Handmade_paper.pdf
>
>The instructions here are to break up the plants and add them to the
>pulp - no cooking needed. In this case, the plants would show up as
>little flecks.
>
>When you cook the plants - the fibers become more a part of the sheet
>of paper - the fibers "weave" themselves into the cotton or abaca
>fibers (or whatever pulp you are using). You can also make paper
>entirely out of plant fibers if you cook them in soda ash (lye).
>
>Maybe check your library for this book:
>The Art of Papermaking with Plants (Paperback) - by Marie-Jeanne Lorente.
>
>I will forward your question to Elizabeth - she is not on Getty list.
>
>Regards,
