Yes it's true. It may have taken more than a week of labour and experiments but it is possible to make one tough, rough paper from Scottish Broom. The sculptural possibilities are enormous.
|passive solar cooking and fermentation|
|Add 1 Tablespoon of white vinegar and whizz it up in the blender|
|Cook stinky swill by boiling ten minutes and a two hour simmer.|
|Place wet paper on a drying rack and allow to dry out of the direct sunlight. I made mine with a window screen on a lawn chair to allow for air circulation on all sides. It still buckled but it can be ironed to flatten.|
|More paper making materials just waiting to be transformed. Onion skins and rose petals.|
Sometimes art making requires a whole lot of stubborn. It is worth experimenting to find an easier way.
