I used plastic canvas mesh to make strips of paper to surround a piece of drawn threadwork.
I used a strip of the plant fibre as a base and then laid partial sheets of paper over the edges to create a framed mesh.
Next I lay a metal mesh on the cloth and a piece of soft metallic mesh cloth. I spooned on pulp and laid a sheet of paper over the mesh. The soft cloth worked very well but the metal mesh cut through the paper as it dried. So I added a layer of plant fibre ( I think it is) to the back and that strengthened it. I will show a picture of this backing.
