Blog Nov, 2018 __________ Papermaking I selected two used 100% cotton t-shirts and washed them twice. I cut them into small pieces and left them soaking over night. After pulping the fabric in the Hollander for more than three hours, I made twenty-four sheets of paper. After squeezing out the extra water in the press, I placed the sheets of paper on the wall for drying. The stayed there overnight. http://www.anapaulaestrada.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/VID_20181128_1038083372.mp4 I laser-cut words from some of the sheets. I folded and collated them to create an unbound book. I was suprised by the delicate and soft texture of the paper. Also, I found out that the cut-outs create shapes (through light & shadow) when passing the pages. This is my outcome of Tim Mosely’s and Karen Stone’s papermaking workshop held at QCA in November, 2018.
