The Creativity of it: Making Big Paper

I am going to follow two different paths with the creativity of this project. The first path is the overarching reason for making the paper. And in the second path I am going to talk a little bit about courage, learning and paper making.


The big home made paper


I am building a video studio to shoot youtube videos. This is how it looks so far. It is a wizard's lair. And it is a fun project. And of course a wizard's lair should have lots of stuff in it including maps! So that is where the big paper project comes from. It is going to be a fantasy map for the wizard's lair. I plan on putting where the blue poster board currently is. You can learn more about the wizard's lair here.

About paper making and courage

It seems a bit of a stretch to assign "courage" to the craft of paper making. And maybe it is a bit strong. But it kind of gets my point across. I have been wanting to make paper for a long time! It has been on the list forever. But, I haven't made the commitment to doing it. I thought it would be complicated and a lot of work!

So I bought a couple of books and read through them. That's what I usually do. And well, to be honest after I finished the books I still had the impression that it was a complicated and challenging.

Until I started, and just went ahead and started doing it. I broke it down into simple steps, made the equipment (Mold and deckel) myself and son of a gun. I made some paper. I did more, And then did more. It is a whole lot of fun! And breaking it down I could see that it actually is a pretty easy process. No big deal!

Here is the process,

  1. Shred and blend some kind of fibrous material adding water
  2. Pour that pulp onto a screen
  3. Screen out and blot out the excess water
  4. dry it off and press it
  5. Done - You have made paper


Seems pretty easy doesn't it?

And this is often the story with courage. The imagined dragons are often much larger than the actual dragons. I think its a kind of Don Quixote thing. If you want to get started very easily making paper my tutorial for beginners is right here:

I been putting this project off for a long time because I thought it would be challenging. Wow I was wrong. Paper making is so easy to do! And it comes out great. I love this and you are going to love it too! The possibilities are endless for scrolls, origami, fine writing and so much more. How to Make Paper
