Silk Paper Making Tutorial


Silk Paper Vase with nightlight made in 1999

Since writing in a previous post about saving wallpaper paste to make silk paper I have had a number of emails asking about silk paper. As I was making the paper yesterday I took pictures as I went along and have written a tutorial for you. Click on SILK PAPER MAKING on the left hand side of this blog and a window will open to allow you to download a PDF file. You will need Acrobat Reader to be able to read the file. If you don't already have Acrobat Reader you can download a free copy of it HERE.

If you have any questions about the tutorial please do email me.

You are a busy lady Carol.
I haven't made any silk paper for a long time either and I can't wait to see what creativity comes out of that wallpaper paste.
