Applay paper pulp to a woven fabric
For the pulp I used white tissue paper which I dyed one part with tea and and others
For this example I I placed my grid of linen scrims with withdrawn threads on a kitchen towl and pressed the the frame with the pulp over it. As the next step I formed a frame from pulp around the fabric
I tried to make a grid which has been created by laying loose threads in a grid formation onto a kitchen cloth. A freshly made sheet of paper was then laid on top. But the blue threads was to thick for embeding into the pulp. The next step, I tried to fix the thicker threads with a thin pulp layer. The flood of water from the cup makes the thread grid swim and destroyed the grid pattern.
this is the result of the 2nd experiment. I had colored the pulp a little and used the withdrawn threads for the grid pattern. The blue threads need to fix a 2nd thin pulp layer at the edge. Otherwise, I prefer the grid. I like the effect as the grid slowly developed out of the pulp from the edge and was seen in the center clearly.
I wrapped the frame of the screen with wool and then scooped the paper
For this experiment, I wrapped yarn around a wooden frame, which I scooped in yellow pulp.The
pulp remains at the fringes of the thin yarn. The grid structure can only be guessed . After pressing the
grid stand out more clearly, but there are no perforations.
The next attempt I made the grid with the yarn and added machine embroidery. That worked fine now. I
like the irregular and involuntary resulting holes. It was a very fragile interesting object.
The bands of linen scrim’ and threads were pressed into a freshly made layer of paper and then secured with some additional layers of yellow and turquoise pulp laid across the bands. In this part, I have pressed the two layers. I think the result is not satisfactory. The object is too flat and I missed the structure. At the 2nd operation I will have to dry the area with the grid pattern without squeezing.
…. and that‘s is the result
I staples an nylon net orange bag to a wooden frame and used it as a squeeze
The same with a citrone net
Weave threads from linen scrim have been withdrawn in both directions and a embroidery yarns has
been stitched in diagonal lines across the withdrawn area embedded between two layers of pulp
Also winding wire can be embedded in paper pulp. I am amazed at how beautiful the materials paper and
fabric can be combined and I love the opportunities to embed a variety of materials into pulp

Stitchery into paper
The stitchery should echo some feature in my research theme of lettering and media patterns.
the develloped pattern.....
the paper with embedded torn fabrics.....
.........and the stitchery
The pattern, the paper with effect yarn.and the stitching with hand and machine
The pattern, the paper with wool yarns and frayed threads and bobbin stitching
The pattern the paper with grids of wool yarns and the paper painted with procionMX and oil paint sticks embroidered with bobbin stitching
a combination of machine and hand stitching
edged with a piped effectyarn
Handstitching with hand dyed cotton yarn and frayed fabric stripes
