Hollander-beaten linen rag pulp was formed Western style on molds surfaced with contact paper to give shape to the paper. Additional color was added to the paper sheet from squeeze bottles containing linen pulp with concentrated addition of pigment and methyl cellulose. Metal rods, ribbons, and threads were imbedded during couching. Each finished piece was air-dried on felts and then dried under pressure with blotters.
The original object was scanned as a TIFF file on a Nikon Coolscan 4000 film scanner at approximately 4000 pixels on the long dimension. A 300 ppi JPEG file limited to 1024 pixels on the long dimension was then added to the CONTENTdm database.
