I try to create a bio-material for an artistic project of my artists collective tripot. The most important thing is that it should look and feel human skin as much as possible. I made some experiments with kombucha but now I want to try to use apple vinegar. @yannick from fermenthings gave me a vinegar scoby and I started to grow in a mixture of apple juice and non-pasteurized apple vinegar. After some failures it seems to work.
But I would like to know if someone has experience with this process. Like for instance a pratcical recipe or knowledge about the properties of the material in comparison to kombucha-leather. Every kind of information would be greatly appreciated!
