FLAX Linen cloth is manufactured from this plant. Flax is a very strong fiber, and its qualities include translucency and high shrinkage when it is beaten for many hours in a Hollander beater. “Bleached flax” comes in sheet form, and although it can be hydrated in a blender or mixer, its real potential is better achieved in a Hollander beater. OTHER OPTIONS Many other fibers and pulps are available from suppliers, such as esparto grass, jute, and raw cotton. Check the resource guide, and inquire with suppliers if you are looking for a particular fiber.
Keep your cooking utensils and pots separate from your papermaking utensils and pots. If possible, do not work in your kitchen. Use a hooded/vented stove to protect yourself from cooking vapors. If this isn’t possible, cook outside with a camping stove. Add alkali to water before it boils. Do not add boiling water to alkali or vice versa; it could splatter and burn you. Wear rubber gloves when working with alkali. COLLECTING AND PREPARING THE FIBER 53 BASIC COOKING PROCESS USING DRY WEIGHTS This process will take approximately 2 hours, but it might need to be adjusted for some fibers.
Papermaker Kathy Crump of Stockton, California, has been making paper from paperwhites (Narcissus tazatta), and she currently has about 400 bulbs growing in her garden — enough to supply her with paper for her projects. To produce the lightestcolored fiber for paper, Kathy covers the ground around her plants with black plastic as the plants grow. If the drying foliage touches the ground, it will acquire fungus spots that make the fiber, and the resulting paper, darker, duller, and spotted. Allow the foliage to die back while it is attached to the bulbs.
