    A good source of information is a tanning forum called The Hide Out! ( http://www.braintan.com/hideout/index.htm ) It's been a long time since I was there, but they had some good threads on making parchment.
    gotta love this forum - there is always someone who know the obscure place to look ... and "hide out" ... great name *lol*

    Parchment and Paper are two very different things. Parchment is very thin, stretched rawhide. Paper is essentially a plant fibre felt. "Parchment Paper" is paper impregnated with silicone for use in cooking.
