Vegan Paper

I just saw this blog post by Jonathan Beaton. I am totally going to try making veggie paper. However, I think I’m going to use leftover pulp from my VitaMix when I’m done juicing. I don’t use a separate juicer, I just put my pulp through a mesh nut milk bag. I’ve been enjoying the juice and have either been composting the pulp or feeding it to my dogs, but it sometimes ends up with the consistency of homemade paper clay and I wonder about its potential as an art material! Has anyone experimented with this? I would probably add a little bit of soap flakes or something to inhibit mold growth, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. I can also see a potential use as a clay for making beads.
