Have a go at this satisfying and effective method of creating highly textured, handmade paper from fibres (the silk papermaking or silk fusion technique). Here are just a few examples of what you can achieve. These examples use silk fibres, skeleton leaves, strips of paper, and scrim.
The technique, which is similar to paper-mache, can be achieved using any absorbent material. It also works well with cellulose fibres such as Cotton Blue Jeans fibre (pictured right), bamboo sliver and flax.
