How to Recycle Paper in a Blender for Art
On behalf of tvlesson.com my name is Sherie Tengbergen. I’m a professional artist with the watercolorgourmet.com. In this clip on recycle paper art, I’m going to show you how to begin the process of putting the paper into the blender and creating this handmade recycled paper.
Now you either have a shredded paper like this is really great but if you don’t have shredded paper all you need to do is take the paper that you want to use and break it up into reasonable size pieces. And I like to do that well quickly here. And this is just old paper that is stained that I couldn’t use for anything.
Okay, and I put in just few sheets and then I fill up my blender with quite a bit of water, you want to have more water than you have paper so that you don’t burn up the motor, you want to put the lid on and begin slowly. Blending and surging your paper like I’m doing here.
And as you see the more that you blend the smaller the pieces get. Now once you get the pieces about where you want them to be is a time that you can go ahead and add some leaves. Or whatever you want to add to your paper and again if you are going to use these big colored leaves try to get rid of the inside stem because that’s a little bit hard on your blender. And put a few pieces in there and hit the button.
And as you can see the leaves have actually colored the water and will color the paper the pulp that we’ve made. On behalf of tvlesson.com this is Sherie Tengbergen and thank you for watching.
