Last week a client brought in some cedar bark strips for us to try out and make some sample papers. We've never hand pounded a fiber before so it truly was an experiment for us, and we couldn't be more pleased with the results! The dry paper color is close to a rich walnut, it's hard to capture with our phone camera. Here are the steps we went through for those that would like to know. (In the future we'll put info. like this on the papermaking wiki that we're developing.)
