HANDMADE BROKEN PARCHMENT, NATURALLY TREATED, WHITENESS WITHOUT CHEMICAL ADDITIVES

The sheet of parchment, just like that of paper, can be used on both faces which, in order to better distinguish them, are called recto and verso or even flower and flesh (hair side and flesh side): on the first it is possible to see the hair follicles. Thickness 2/3 tenths of a millimeter. To further degrease the hair side (where the cavities of the hair follicles of the animal are present) you can use a dry technique with pumice, stone or powder (it makes the surface less porous by closing the hair pores) or more superficially with pure ethyl alcohol at least 95°. To lower the thickness you can use a scraper and either sandpaper or pumice stone. The side that takes the glue best is the flesh side. To make it softer before gluing, it can be slightly wetted until it loses strength and adapts to the surface.
