Mummies and inkjet silk



Not only were the mummies used for fuel, and the linen used for paper,
but ground mummy was used as medicine because of a bad translation from
Arabic. The paper made from the linen was quite brown and not suitable
for fine paper uses, so much was made into paper bags, used for
groceries, leading to an outbreak of diseases (how did the mummies die?)
Mummified cats were a very popular Victorian ornament, but eventually
also became fuel for the fire. And they thought coal was bad for ones
lungs!

Ink jet silk is available from <http://www.dharmatrading.com>
I have used it and it is quite easy to do.
