'making paper - the beginning and the end - where's the middle?' by myra anderson painter of the ballerina sketch . . .

Well . . . I was working on photographing the steps to making paper and I got tired of taking pictures somewhere in the middle.  The beginning as you can see below is to take your shredded paper - put paper and water in the blender - get tired of taking pictures - take a photo of the finished product and and paint it with gesso . . . and away we go . . . I'll fill in the middle later!

Bonjour chère amie,

Oh c'est incroyable ! Je n'aurais pas songer mettre du papier dans mon blender ! C'est une bonne idée... Tu as ensuite étalé la pâte obtenue sur un support ?...
Bravo ! cela me semble très sympathique de travailler sur ton propre papier.

❁ Gros bisous ❁

This is so very cool, and I totally get getting bored taking pictures. I do it all the time. My intentions are always good, in the beginning. Somewhere in the middle, I start losing patience, and I just want to see the job through to the end. No stops. No breaks.

Well, that was helpful. ;)

Your paper looks like it turned out great!

so, for this non paper maker's information, do you pour the blended paper onto the screen and let it dry?
Does the screen have to be elevated over a tray?
I'm totally intrigued :)
