Elliptical paper

I want to tear my paper to an ellipse to match the shape of my plate. I want a deckle edge, so I can't just cut it was an exacto knife.

I make an ellipse out of stencil plastic to act as I guide and score along the edge to mark my paper.

Carefully brushing water along the edge repeatedly softens the paper and with some practice and patience I can tear it along the marked line.

I have my elliptical paper which is the last piece of my puzzle.
