Make Paper At Home

Make Paper At Home

This is probably a cool hack that you may want to do it once in a life time – making your own paper at home. You can use newspaper, or recycling paper, and couple of other usual materials such as hairdryer, sponge, and wooden frame:

Making Paper

    PROCEDURE:
    – soak some of the newspaper in water (it’s better if you let it to set for a day or two);
    – squeeze out the excess water;
    – with the mortar and pestle, crush a little bit of paper at a time until you get a homogeneous paste, consisting of fibers isolated from each other (figure 5);
    – repeat this until you have enough paste;
    – fill the bowl halfway with water;
    – put the paper paste in the bowl and stir it to separate the fibers;
    – remove any resulting clumps (a dense suspension of fibers must remain in the water);
    – immerse the frame in the watery suspension in the bowl (the sieve should be facing the bottom of the bowl);
    – slowly remove the frame from the suspension keeping it steadily horizontal; eventually move the frame to even out the layer of fibers (figure 6);
    – wait for the water to drain;

    Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

    Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

    • Gather new material, both specific and general.
    • The Mental Digestive Process
    • Drop it
    • Poof, the idea appears
    • Work it

    Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
