Parchment Size Recipe

    112g / 4oz parchment chips cut to a reasonable size

    add the parchment chips to 2 pints of water

    simmer for 45 minutes

    strain then allow to cool

    add 5 to 7 drops of Isopropanol when the size is cool

Isopropanol helps the solution to flow and penetrate, when sizing
parchment or vellum
