Narrative:

With the disable adults I work with I provide colored pulp for them to paint onto their freshly pulled paper. Their disabilities range from visually impaired to quadriplegic. I have noticed that the size of the (mustard) bottles do matter, so from my experience I use squeeze bottles for hair dying. I feel they teach me more (about life) than I can ever teach them about papermaking. Their work is full of bright colors different from my own that have more natural tones and texture.
