I folded Stars among Hexagons from a sheet of John Gerard’s handmade hemp and flax paper. These two ingredients give the paper a lot of strength and crispness even though it is relatively thin. The mixture is well-balanced for my needs. Paper with too much flax results in a crease much lighter in color than non-creased areas, which I consider undesirable for most models. In this well-balanced fiber mix, the crease does not differ from flat areas too much. Overall, this was a very good paper to fold with.
