I've discovered some handy ways that may be helpful to web visitors. Below are some of my "how to and other notes".
How to
Make deckle edges on 300 lb. watercolor paper.
Soak the paper's edge in a deep sink or tub for 15-20 minutes up to a line slightly above the level you plan to tear.Place moistened paper along a sharp table edge and top with a heavy metal yard stick along the tear line. Use your forearm to anchor the straight edge and slowly and gently tear upward along the straightedge until finished. Makes a lovely deckle!
