Carnations keep my self sane during the retail insanity .... preping for a papermaking session!

these come from a couple of bunches of flowers, one of which was given to me on my birthday........

as we papermakers know.........after cooking the petals will loose their lovely colours but I will reintroduce them by pigmenting the gampi and kozo fibres.

ok......back to papermaking.........

Clean up the vats day! Small amounts of pigmented gampi, abaca and text pulps needed to be used up so I can start a-fresh. Sometimes the best stuff comes out of these sessions cause I'm not trying/thinking too much!
