paper.jpgI have a friend who used to sit around in a storefront on Stanton Street all day and make her own paper. She often stained it with tea to make these nice muted colors. I woke up thinking I'd like to try to make some paper just to see what it's like. I found an easy to follow flickr set of instructions with photos. Follow this woman B. Zedan's instructions and you'll be all set. She also has other tutorials on her flickr site, including how to make a monotype print. Also related, from those crafty kids at Make: Zine, here's how elephant dung paper is made. Siick.
