I’m curious to know whether I can make a parchment-like material.

Learning about Colm Cille and the Columban church has got me thinking about monastic writing and the materials they would have used.

Is the texture of parchment rough and crinkly or supple and smooth? Having never been in a position to handle the material myself I can’t say for sure.

I have set out create an analogous substance using gelatine.
