This is an ancient art like the process that produced papyrus. I'm making "corn paper" from the leaves of husked corn. They are washed and cut into pieces before soaking overnight in water (above). The next day they are drained and cooked with a soda ash solution for 2+ hours to break down the plant fibers. Cooking causes color changes from light green to brown. After cooling overnight, I'll use my usual handmade paper-making process and post a photo of the result tomorrow. I try to avoid cooking, but my healing hand likes it better than sewing and knitting. I may have enough pulp to make 2 whole sheets of paper, wish me luck!
