I’ve perfected my paper thickness consistency and determined that a silkscreen frame is perfect for papermaking.
1. Crushed leaves. 2. Pressed flower petals. 3. Crushed stems and pressed petals. 4. Dried lavender. 5. Plain paper. 6. Blue paper pulp then green poured on top and mixed for marbling effect.
I was able to use the same batch of water but got these vibrant color changes just by adjusting how much colored cardstock scraps added. Small seeds or dried items are best mixed in with the paper pulp. For thicker paper, pressed flowers were added on top.
