Mix up your paper pulp.. you can use old junk mail and a blender.. the nicer your pulp the nicer your paper will be.
Put your screen and your deckle into your vat with the pulp.
Get an even layer of pulp on your screen.
Remove your screen and take off the deckle
Flip your paper over onto the felt and sop out extra water with the sponge
Take your paper off the felt and place in a drying rack.
Here are two video's I found helpful in understanding the basic process of paper making.
