The Funa Mizu which is the principal paper liquid made of Kouzo plants is already prepared. We just have to take out  the paper material with a grid  for 10 post cards. The Washi master lady helps to have the best success. 

 

 

The still wet and sticky paper is now decorated with the collected plants.

A high  pressure squeezer puts the ornaments to the paper and flattens it.

 

 

 

Below there are the almost finished Washi post cards
