Onion paper

Finally with everything collected together and a day off work I had my first go at making paper by myself at home.  The set up seemed to take forever but once I had everything in place the paper making its self went very well.  The smaller sheets worked really well while the bigger sheets were harder to control.  I think I need to add more cotton fibre next time.  This set were all using onion fibres  but I've a good collection of other plant material to play with in the future. 
Its really satisfying to do something like this and now that I know that I can make my own paper I can start thinking about projects to use it in.
