Paper Making

We used embroidery hoops to hold screen for forming paper. Embroidery hoops
are inexpensive, about $1.00 @ and come in a wide size range -- no staple
gun required.

We lifted the frame, flat side up, thru the dilute pulp then turned the
frames face down on "HandiWipes" laid over newspaper. After blotting up
water with a sponge, the screen was lifted off. Then a second "HandiWipe"
was placed on top before pressing between dry newspaper.
