Re: Pulled paste papers with yarn/string

Hi, Peter,
    Thanks.   I am using a fairly thick paste.   And usually I do fold the
papers over and put paste on both top and bottom.
    You're saying then, that the yarn is be used only as a resist?  And is
to be removed after the papers are pulled apart?
