I had a brief burst of medicine-induced energy yesterday morning, and the results proved fruitful. There was a piece of joomchi dried around a shishigatani squash (above & below).
Also, I've long suspected that joomchi had an improved ductility over paper...and my experiment confirmed that hunch. I prefer to keep the specifics close to the vest for now, but take a look at the picture below:
You'll notice that even though the outside dimensions of the sheet remain fairly consistent, there is a great deal of slack material in the center...nearly 3" in height!! This shows ductility. The problem is that unless dried on a form, the joomchi can't hold up its own weight.
I also (not pictured) turned a sheet of joomchi into momigami. It has the drape and feel of chamois. Softer than a bag full of bunnies. And on that note...I need about two yards of medium gauge paper thread...anyone interested in trading some for a sheet or two of joomchi momigami?
