Thai arts

I went to this Thai arts place. They taught me how paper umbrellas are made it was very interesting and I will share it with you today!

First they start by taking the wood from the SA-tree and soaking it in water for a while.After that they squash it with a hammer for about one our.

WOW!!

Then they will soak it in water again to make the pulp. When that is finished they would stir it in a big tub place. And then the will put it on a big tray and leave it in the sun cool for an hour. Then they will peal it off.
