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.
