Garlic Paper part 2
In 2015 I made my first batch of paper using garlic skins. I loved it so much I started collecting them again straight away so I could make some more at some point - garlic skins being very small and fine you need a lot of them to make paper and collecting that amount takes some time. So some 3 1/2 years later, with a big bag full, I decided it was time to try again.
It really is beautiful stuff. I love the look and feel. I made a good batch this time and just need to press it flat before I can use it. I made a mixture of A4, A5 and A6 sheets, so I should be able to find some uses for it.
