paper making

Fri Oct 23 15:44:31 EST 1998

  I've made paper many times inadvertantly when making a cell wall prep.  If
you start with soft herbaceous tissue, blend it well with water, then filter
it through a Buchner funnel, you will get a circular piece of paper.  Wash
with lots of water, then peel it off the filter paper and dry.  Starting
with soft tissue means that the fibers do not have to be delignified.  Neal
