How to Make Paper - Introduction

This is a tutorial on the easy way to make home made paper. I show you everything step by step and give you some tips on creative paper making.

This process is about recycling old or unwanted paper and reclaiming it as new and wonderful quality paper for arts and crafts.

I will show you a few different variations you can do with the paper and I also show you some things you can make with the paper including origami.

I also have a video that shows this process. It is at the bottom of the page.

 

Here is some paper being made. The wooden thing is the mold and deckle. You just need some wood and some common household screening to make it. You can also buy the mold and deckle quite cheaply. I have a couple of kits at the bottom of this page.

These papers follow various recipes. I have a page with larger pics and the recipes right here:
