Biomaterial Experiment


The initial process of brewing tea and combining sugar with the contents of the kombucha packet was fairly simple. It took around 5 days before I started seeing any real change. There was a few very small specks of mold but they disappeared before the kombucha really started to grow into a film that covered the whole bin.

It smells pretty bad and vinegar-y and looks really interesting. I have yet to touch it but am not really looking forward to it. I think it’s really cool that I’m growing something that can be used as an alternative to leather. Once it really started growing I could see noticeable change each day, and it continues to get thicker.
