A papermaker would dip the mould into a vat containing diluted pulp of hemp or linen fibres, then lift it out, tilt it to spread the pulp evenly over the sieve and, as the water drained out between the wires, shake the mould to lock the fibres together. In the process, the pattern of the wires in the sieve was imparted to the sheet of paper.
