    I will give it a shot, but right now I am waiting for my secret weapon. I bought 30$ worth of 150 year old english land deeds on vellum. They should be here in a week or two. I will wash and scrape them and then have two 22*28 sheets of REAL vellumm!!!!!! I also did some research and found out that vellum makers produce a composite product called opaline. I have contacted an SCA limner to find out where I can find it. Apparantely it is much cheaper than the real stuff.

    Excellent find!! be sure to scan them before you scrape them too, never know what use you'll have in the future for that sort of thing

    Sounds like a plan. I think I may have found a source for opaline. I will post when I have a response from them about whether or not it is available.
