The cotton rag pulp sheet was formed on a Western style mold. A thick base sheet was couched and then additional layers were couched from a mold with a resist area taped on its surface. This taped area caused a hole in each sheet of paper made. The hole matched the shape and size of the stone later to be placed in the work. Once a sufficient thickness of the sheet had been accumulated, the stone was placed in the hole and a final full sheet was couched over the entire surface. Each work was pressed in a hydrolic press and dried under restraint on felts. Drying took several weeks. One of the works was rubbed with graphite after drying.
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.
