Beaten Pulps (ready to use)

Below is the pricing of different pulps offered for use in the studio or to be taken away and used in your own facility.  All pulps must be picked up in person by appointment.  The pulp can be picked up at the studio but you will need to bring a clean, 5 gallon pail with lid to transport it (available at most hardware stores, ACE, Lowes, Home Depot; McClendon’s).  A further note that if you are transporting it with or without a lid there are fewer mishaps if you can put it in one of the large black garbage bags, even if the bucket has a lid.

The pulp will be beaten and most of the water drained to form a concentrated pulp.  You just add water to the consistency you need for your particular project.  The pulp can be stored wet and rinsed every few days.

To order pulp, please contact me at maryashtonstudio@earthlink.net  with your name, and telephone number and specify the type of pulp, your projected use (i.e. sheet forming casting, pulp painting, etc.), and quantity and when you might need it.  Sizing may be added for an additional fee and must be discussed with me at the time of the order.  I will contact you to answer any questions you might have for your project.

You will receive an online PayPal invoice which can be paid via paypal, creditcard online or a personal check mailed directly to the address on the invoice.  You do not have to have a PayPal account to pay online.  Your order is complete upon receipt of payment.

The studio is in the University/Roosevelt area of Seattle.  Directions are sent prior to pick-up.
