I'm making paper-of course... Pulp, mostly. I just emptied The Critter of a mix of flax and cotton rag/linter pulp. I drew a few sheets of it, but I dropped the "control" sheet in water, so it is lost. It was "only" beaten about 12 hours and had cotton rag only, no linters added.

I have now made paper from aparagus fern, flax, cotton rag, denim, and grass clippings. I so love doing this...

I'm in and out of the house working on research for the next batch and for some beeswax/damar finishes for future projects. Truth is, I'll use most any excuse to use beeswax-it smells so wonderful.
