Process and workflow

It was again a witches kitchen ! We did the whole Process as a goup. It was my first time I try to make bioplastic, the first pot i made some gelatine burned also ...but the burned gelatine made a nice pattern in the plastic. It's feel also a little but uggly to create this new material - i keep some distance to the slimy materials.

But I knit a example with Agar thread. It was very slippery for knitting, and shrank a lot when it was dry. It was fun!
