I had a nice day at the Gallery today: I chopped up a piece of old paper.
Then I boiled the bits of old paper for about 4 hours, strained the paper out, and then boiled down the stuff until I had about 2 mL of concentrated paper extract collected in it. Look at that boiling!
I'm going to use it to tone something the appropriate color. This still needs to loose about 8 mL of water, but you can see the color!
And Hye-Sung surprised me with little fruit tarts and gigantic candles! We decided not to light them, as it would have been a little awkward if we'd set off an alarm or something.
