Make Recycled Paper

Step 7 of 9: Blot the mold

Place the mold on the tray and cover with the extra piece of screen. Gently press the sponge on the blotting screen to remove excess water from the paper. Squeeze the sponge back into the slurry container. Continue blotting until most of the water is removed.
