Are you inspired by autumn colors, acorns, spiders or spooks? Consider entering the Fall Contest. We'd love to see your project!

Happy papermaking,

Arnold Grummer's Couch Sheets are great for paper making.
Did you know you can also use them to quick-dry botanicals?

Ferns and leaves will dry in a few days - not weeks - between couch sheets in a press or under books
After pressing, ferns and rose petals are ready to go
Pressed botanicals are easy to add in the deckle or vat

Now is a good time to stock up on leaves and grasses to use all winter.
Fall leaves and grasses hold less moisture than spring and summer foliage.
press grasses between couch sheets
Here, grasses collected on an afternoon walk are laid out on a couch sheet
to stack in the Garden Press overnight
in blender and float large pieces in deckle or vat
Use pressed botanical paper for projects
The next day, they were ready to put into paper and made into projects.
Autumn botanicals will usually dry in 24 hours.

3 sizes, 20 or 100 sheet packs.

When they look old and worn out, don't toss 'em, keep using 'em
