A METHOD OF MOUNTING PARCHMENT USING HAIR SILK

MARGARET LAWSON



4 MATERIALS

Materials needed to accomplish the hair silk mounting procedure include a sewing needle with a strong but small eye, a small soft-headed hammer, linen tape, a burnisher, a pin vise (tiny hand drill, fig. 4), a light box, a loop, a small scalpel, and hair silk (available from Talas in two- and four-strand skeins). (We used double stranded.)
