Day 83

Here are scans of the two images I printed on the kozo paper I made.

You'll recognize the photos from one of my recent blog posts. Both of the images are from our trip to Japan.

I didn't do anything special to the paper. This is paper that I  made in a Japanese paper making class. It is made with a fiber called Kozo, which comes from a Mullberry bush. There is no sizing in the paper, and nothing coating it to accept the ink differently. This paper was made, dried, and then shoved into my printer. 

I am considering making more of this paper to make more prints on. I can make the paper quite a bit whiter (it involves a longer cleaning process). 

Many things to think about.

Until Monday
