Finally, you need to try your papyrus sheet, but then it is ready to use.
Different from the larger sheets, the strips we can only provide for limited times in the year, as they need to be made from summer papyrus. This gives them a certain softness which we need for making the papyrus sheets ourselves. Our pack has a presorted bag of stripes, already correctly sized so that you can work with them. A detailed instruction with images is included that guide you. Even beginners will quickly achieve an effective result.
