How do I manufacture this paper/pulp detail?

I have a small detail (abt 50x35x20mm) that I want to take from 3D to reality. It would be easy to just send it to the local 3D print hub, but the issue is that I want it in some kind of paper pulp material, or some other material that can withstand heat and also be lightweight. I know that there exists 3D printers that can print in paper, but I haven't been able to locate a print shop with such a machine. For prototyping, I have cut kraft paper sections and glued together, but I'd like to find a faster way. There is also a production method for pulp moulding, but the shape of my detail is too complicated for this method. Any ideas of production methods or materials that I could use instead? The detail can be split in 2 if neccessary, but I'd prefer not. Thanks in advance!

I'm trying to make seeded paper and it is VERY thick, even after it dries. Any suggestions?

I am making sheets of seeded paper to then cut apart into cards or background for cards. My current creations are almost 2-mm thick and aren't exactly what I would say is plyable. I have tried cardboard pulp. I have tried card stock pulp (b/c that is what I have extra waste from). If I used normal paper would it work better? Would adding bleach tot he pulp kill the flowers? Obviously, I could test, but I'm trying not to reinvent a perverbial recycled wheel

Cement cover over paper (mache) sculpture?

Ok, this might sound as a stupid idea, but i was reading about Papercrete today which sounds fascinating and i will have a try on it. But then this other weird idea came up to me.....i want to make something like a giant rock, and i thought perhaps instead of using papercrete, what if i made the whole giant rock with just paper pulp and then cover it up with cement so it could be waterproof ? is that possible? please give me your thoughts

how do I fake a color offset print of a 1940's pulp comic book with today's laser digital printers and bond paper?

I need to print a comic book image in the same style and paper as the comic books of the 1940s...but real offset printing will only print hundreds or thousands of copies - and I just need 4 or 5. I have thought about printing digitally on modern bond paper and then aging the paper with tea, but I dont know if that will work. If anyone's done this before and wouldnt mind sharing their experiment results with me, I'd be very grateful! :) thanks! Javier

Has anyone here built their own Hollander Beater?

Hi all of you builders and shakers, I love papermaking and using arts therapy in education. Hollander Beaters are huge, efficient pulp-making machines, but their awesomeness is crippled by their price tag. Plus you can't have them in a townhouse or transport them for educational workshops. I've heard of artists building their own Hollander beaters in miniature, transportable form (ex the Little Critter, Cherub, Oracle) and if they can do it, well, maybe someone on here can do it too! Does anyone know how to get plans for assembling a DIY Hollander beater, or of anyone who has built one for their own studio, or where I might go to get parts for this project? Thanks in advance!
