Dried Leaves Pencil
Transcript of Dried Leaves Pencil
WHY DRIED LEAVES?
In The Scientific Paper
TO LESSEN THE CONSUMPTION OF WOOD
LEAVES ARE EVERYWHERE
By this, leaves will have a better purpose than just being A TRASH
In this experiment, dried leaves will be the main component in making the replacement for the regular cover of the lead in pencil. The process would be similar when creating a paper maché sculpture. Materials would be, the dried leaves, tissue paper, flour, water, regular glue, recycled paper, and the pencil's lead. The flour, water, and regular glue will be the paste for the mixture. It is known as one of the strongest bonding agent for paper mache. Small amount of tissue paper needed to make the dried leaves pencil even more durable. The amount of time before the mixture hardens is about 24 hours. Proper following of procedure is the key to having a successful output.
A leaf is made of many layers that are sandwiched between two layers of tough skin cells (called the epidermis). The epidermis also secretes a waxy substance called the cuticle. These layers protect the leaf from insects, bacteria, and other pests. Leaves are very useful in many ways. Most famous use of leaves are teas, but, when leaves got dried up, they are considered useless. That is why dried leaves is chosen to be the main component, and since it is also part of trees, and not hard to obtain.
The flour and water a popular type of paste among paper mache sculptors for it is cheaper, yet, effective bonding agent.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
The pencil made out of dried leaves was durable, but it takes time before it hardens if it is left at room temperature. The joint compound is better and fast drying than homemade paste, but, the flour-water paste is cheaper and also effective. The scent is similar as to green tea. For better appearance of the dried leaves pencil, it may be painted and/or covered with a decorated paper instead of an ordinary recycled paper.
Dried leaves as pencil is effective, plus, it's components are cheaper and very eco-friendly. This type of product can be very helpful in conserving trees.
