Handmade paper

greenspun.com : LUSENET : polaroid transfers : One Thread

I made a batch of homemade paper for doing dry image transfers and although I used a spray bottle to wet the surface, the entire emulsion lifted off no matter how slowly and carefully I tried to separate it along with some of the paper...is there a product or method I can use to help prevent this from occuring....or perhaps a better paper recipe...I simply used recycled paper, blended, and shaped with a frame and deckle....would it help to ad either starch or gelatin to the mixture? Any help would be appreciated, I had my heart set on using this paper for this purpose.
