The museum also has a small factory demonstrating the process and methods of hand sheet paper making, from soaking, staming, bleaching to drying.
The museum uses "Paper" as mediums to exert people generate ideas, combine life, culture and nature with artistic creativity.
At present, the paper making industry with plant fiber raw materials can be divided into two categories:
1. Wood fiber raw materials:
Vegetable fibers obtained directly from the trees, respectively by the bark, loofah, divination blocks white bamboo shoots, Tetrapanax, hemp, leather and other fibers to produce Chu;
2. Non-wood fiber raw materials:
Grass divided fiber material, bast fiber material and seed hair fiber material.
For a hand-sheet making, there is the concept of recycling waste paper can be shredded, add water into the blender labeled as a paste, made into a pulp.
Before making the hand-sheets, the narrator invited us to taste the sweet-scented osmanthus tea for which we're going to use.
Hand-sheets material: osmanthus, white pulp, osmanthus leaves.
There are two different kinds of paper pulp materials. The short fiber paper pulp is made from the tropical broadleaf wood and the long fiber paper pulp is from the boreal coniferous wood. This time, we use the longer fiber paper pulp to make the hand sheet.
Making pulp trees to tropical regions broadleaf wood into pulp and boreal regions spun into long fiber coniferous wood pulp. This time we use the long-fiber pulp.
Hand-sheets making process:
Blend the pulp into a basin of water and sprinkle with a grasp of the sweet-scented osmanthus leaves.
Stir the paper pulp water back and forth three times while placing the filter kit into the basin
Remove the filter kit from the basin and you can clearly see the paper pulp and osmanthus leaves blended scatterly together.
Then, place a couple sheets of dry paper on top of the filter kit and press it as hard as you can.
Next, flip filter kit upside down and wipe the water out from the filter screen with a cloth.
Pick the osmanthus pulp out from the filter kit and then place it onto a sheet of dry paper.
You'd almost have your own osmanthus-hand-sheets.
You can also add some personal touch onto the hand-sheets by adding leaves prints or keep the leaves on the hand-sheets before drying the pulp on the filter kit.
If you want to keep the leaves, just topped it with a little pulp water.
Two different methods : Keeping the Leaves or leave print on the hand-sheets.
Finally, placing the hand-sheet onto the heated platform provided by the factory.
(if you make this at home, you can either use a iron or just simply attach the hand-sheet onto the windows for drying).
