Small sheets of handmade paper

While my grand daughter was visiting we made handmade paper. We started with the blue the first day and made pink the next.  We had prepped all the pulp the first day so we were able to add to our vat as we went.  You can see that we made a variety of hues by added more coloured pulp as well as different colours by adding pink or blue to make several shades of purple.  We also added coloured snippets at several junctures in the process.  It was fun and very nice to be making handmade paper again!!
