Whether you are looking for a new hobby or want to get started in papermaking, this workshop from Arnold Grummer has everything that you need. Handmade paper is a popular way to add creative touches to greeting cards, letters and creating your own books. It is the first step on the road to mixed media journaling. The kit comes complete with an instructional video that teaches you the basics and some interesting tips and tricks to making your own papers. Designed for ages 10 years and older, the kit walks you through the steps to making card-sized sheets. Included inside is a #73 Large Dip Handmold, screen set, scrubbed corn husk and cotton specialty pulp, botanicals, drying cloths and the video.
The included handmold makes standard-size 8.5" x 11" paper sheets. Along with the mold, you get a screen, illustrated instructions for making handmade paper, and how to use the botanicals. A packet of botanicals is included for getting started.
The rest of the kit includes an addition smaller dip handmold which is a good one to practice on and a larger instructional booklet.
Handmade papers are ideal for anyone who enjoys scrapbooking, writing, making collages, journaling or origami. This kit will keep teenagers and pre-teens occupied for hours, but is an equally intriguing gift for an adult who loves to work with paper.
