An A to Z book about how to make paper using silk and other fibers commonly used as rovings for spinning. Includes information on dyeing your fibers, making the paper and ideas on using it once it is made. The last portions of the book are devoted to molding your fiber into bowls, masks, anything you could possible think of.

This is a visually beautiful book, full of new ideas on using up your fiber stash.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0855328932, Paperback)

Silk paper can be made into original bowls, book covers, multimedia textile pieces, boxes, and lampshades—each one of them unlike anything that has been made before. The process could not be simpler. You need no special tools or equipment and it only takes minutes. Textures and colours can be combined; beads, leaves and seeds can be added—it is fun to experiment and to create unique, lustrous papers. See how easy it is to progress from complete beginner to accomplished artist with a few simple projects. The step-by-step instructions aim to develop skills and confidence, and the projects are attainable by even the least experienced papermaker. A gallery of artists is included to challenge and inspire the textile artist.
