Make a wooden frame with a fine gauze. Slide it under
the hyacinth and put on the bottom of the bowl. When the water has
settled, gently raise the frame.
Using a small, dry cloth, pat the water hyacinth to
make it as dry as possible.
Spread a larger cloth out on the floor. Turn the
frame over, lay it on the cloth and pat more with the small cloth.
Lift the frame so that the water hyacinth paper falls
on the cloth. Place another cloth on top of the water hyacinth, and
several newspapers on top of that. On top again, place a wooden board, and
a rock or something heavy.
After 30 minutes, take everything off the water hyacinth
paper, peel it carefully off the cloth and lay it out to dry for 24 hours.
Experiment with different proportions of Water
Hyacinth pulp and wastepaper pulp, until you have the paper you like best.
