  1. What was the plastic tub filled with in which you dumped the paper pulp before dipping the screen into it?

  2. Hello there,

    I'm Mhar C. Caadan from the Philippines. I conducted an experiment which is required in our Research Subject, on making papers using the fibers of a Banana Peel and Used papers as a variable in my study. I would like to ask for your help by listing the materials needed on making a paper. And I promise to include your name as a sign of gratitude. Thank you and God Bless.

  4. Hello, sir. Good day. Personally, I love the instructional video, and I've learned a lot from it, i still have yet to perform it, though. You seem to be experts in the paper making industry. I just would like to ask some help, if you don't mind…

    We came up with this investigatory project concerning the use of fruit peelings as an ingredient in recycling paper. I know for a fact that the old paper utilized, is, in itself, a fiber. I am just wondering if I were to add citrus fruit peelings, (specifically lemon peelings), mixed with old papers (literally, the same process you did, but with the addition of fruit peels), would it have any effect? I'm just hoping this project of ours wouldn't backfire.

    Thank you very much.

  5. Just wondering…. as an end process, can a roller be used to smooth out the paper fibers? If so, should it be done after they have completely dried, or while the pages are still slightly damp?

  6. Oooh! I came across this just now when I found my little papermaking kit from years ago and no instructions, heh! So I'm at the pulping stage right now and wondering about sizing? I'm upcycling old (not written on) notebooks that were going to landfill, so I'm thinking they might already be ok to write/paint on without having to size them? Great fun video, btw, thanks! 🙂

  7. I suppose you could bleach out some of the ink of used paper. This was made with brand new paper.
    Its not a huge problem usually because people ink at most 10% of the paper, which means 90% yield of white clean paper.
