Today after tidying up craft corner I decided to make homemade paper. Good weather for a fun activity. Earlier I had posted the technique of making paper from home. This time I would like to share with you how I make coloured paper. Try it & have fun! Enjoy the pictures!
|I need used white paper. Tear into pieces.|
|I need small amount of coloured paper. I chose orange & red.|
|Dried rose petals.|
|Put the pieces of paper into the blender.|
|Pour water. Blend it!|
|Add coloured paper.|
|The amount of coloured paper I used. Blend it!|
|Looked like strawberry smoothies!|
Thought of doing something different!
Added orange peeled. Blend.
|Add dried rose petals. Blend for a while. I want the effect on the paper.|
|In the other hand, prepare water in a basin. Add liquid starch.|
|Stir well. Pour blended paper.|
|Stir the mixture.|
|Use strainer to scoop out the mixture. Drain! Leave until no more dripping water.|
|Turn strainer backward to detach paper.|
|I can't wait; I used iron to half dry it.|
You can use sponge to absorb excess water.
Personally I don't like using sponge.
Dry it under the sun.
|Manage to produce 8 sheets of coloured homemade paper.|
Ready to be used.
|Look closely! Can you see the orange peeled?|
