Got out my cmc powder. It said on the packet, mix one or two tablespoons with a little water taken from one pint. Stir vigorously then add the rest.
Deep sigh. I think it must have meant the rest of the water. Thick stuff this paste.
Anyway, after I had beaten it to within an inch of it's life, sieved it to get all the lumps out, I had a nice batch of gloopy paste. Add some silk, viscose, bamboo and whatever else I had dyed recently and I have paper. I did three sheets using commercial dyed silk tops and three where I carefully threw any old thing on. Guess which I like best?
I do like a bit of texture. No idea what I will do with my sheets. But I like them. Ish.
