Re: Business Card Deckle for Papermakers



About business card deckles for couching handmade paper - there is one very
inexpensive way to make  multiple business card rectangles with 4 deckle
edges - you will have to experiment:  apply half inch masking tape to your
HMP mould to create rectanglular areas on the screen .  After making your
supply, take the tape off as it will age and plug up some of the screen
holes requiring extra manipulating to get clean again.
 OR, you can cut the rectangles out of contact paper and apply, adhesive
side down to the screen, removing the contact paper when finished
 OR, using an  exacto knife or such, cut the rectangles out of a stiff
waterproof material  that fits your mould surface, place the master over
your screen and then your regular deckle frame over that to hold it all
firmly while
couching.

Fun!
