[BKARTS] Glue morphing to paper grain



Tim Barrett likes to say that handmade junk is still junk. Most handmade paper has at least some grain (take a sheet, lay it flat, measure its footprint, then dampen it thoroughly and see in which direction it grows: if it grows by the same length both vertically and horizontally, it doesn't have much grain).
