So, The past two weeks we had a school break. Before I left my student housing I did not think it through but I thought I would take out my smallest and longest grown peace of kombucha leather. Not thinking it though that it would need enough time to dry. I at first laid it on a piece of wood on the radiator. I turned the peace of leather a few times and I could already feel it stuck a but to the wood while drying.
Then I had to leave, zo my idea was to lay it on baking paper. The problem was I didn't have any. So I had to think quick and thought to lay it on a piece of tracing paper. Sadly enough it stuck to the tracing paper.
However, I covered the while peace with water and it came of quite easily! The thing is that I should have left the peace to grow a bit longer because it's way too thin and fragile.
I will still use the peace to experiment with though. Because it is so thin it does give a cool effect when you hold it in the light, it's semi see through.
I also have started growing crystals. At the moment I’m just growing regular crystals to get the hang of it and I can then use them form my ideas in my first post:
'I ether want to grow crystals and then test different ways of using them. For instance crush the crystals completely. Then mix the sand like mixture with some sort of glue. Then pour it into a mould.
Another idea was to grow the crystals on a piece of textile so it would be flexible'
@winnieponcelet actually gave me a really cool concept to take in consideration. Apparently at Kask Gent there are students growing crystals with insects inside. This could be something really cool to work out. I'm looking up if there are any other people out there who have tried this and might have any tips. Perhaps I can try and contact any of the students in gent to see if they can might have any tips.
