Working With Paper Pulp

There is something wonderful and rewarding about feeling paper pulp in your hands, the water squeezing though your fingers,  feeling the fibers...and then making a form.  
Here we've used paper pulp to make artistic bowls.  We blended torn paper with water in a household blender and used bowls lined with saran wrap for the molds.  The color is purely from the paper,  paint was not added.  The students enjoyed mixing various kinds and colors of paper to come up with unique colors and textures.
