Module 4-Chapter 6-To apply wet paper pulp to woven fabric - part 2

7l: here the woven fabric with the withdrawn threads was pushed into the very wet paper pulp so that the pulp came through the threads

7m: some of the threads were withdrawn, then gaps were cut into the fabric. Again the fabric was pushed into the wet pulp to make sure it is embedded safely

7n: the fabric grid was made by cutting out horizontal strips then these were used to be put back into the created gaps.
7o: fabric strips with withdrawn threads were embedded into the red pulp, then black paper pulp was put on top. I like the way the fabric structure shows through the black pulp. This structure could be reproduced onto the black pulp with stitch

7p: withdrawn threads from previous fabrics were embedded into the black pulp, then a frame of red pulp was put on top
7q: the letter "S" was cut out of some red paper and embedded, together with some fabric strips onto black pulp. The letter doesn't seem to be very "integrated" but I think the later stitching will help unify the whole sample

This second batch of papers proved more successful as I embedded the fabric into the very wet pulp. I'm quite happy with the results as the fabric really gives the impression "to be part of" the paper

You have some super samples Pascale. I do hope you are enjoying making paper.
