I haven’t tried potato, but I made rice starch by cooking it in a lot of
water so it won’t burn and just turns to mush. I may have squeezed
it through cheesecloth. I stapled a piece of silk to a drum frame,
pulling it tight. Then I rubbed the rice paste in and it dried to
make a membrane that could move air. Later I replaced it with
some plastic drafting vellum but the rice paste worked fine… I
think the silk tore at the staples.
