The smooth surface is similar to a Japanese gampi paper but its decorative white fibers is reminiscent of the Japanese unryu paper. A very thin, translucent, white paper that is still incredibly strong. This makes it perfect for dyeing, stitching in layers, chine colle, and painting with most water-based art media including watercolors or gouache, and fluid acrylics. Unsized, absorbent and shows ink tonality and color brilliantly. It is very durable for wet-washing, dyeing and collage.
Ideal for Sumi-e or Chinese brush painting, and also useful for Calligraphy, Mounting, Rubbing, Stamping, Kite, Lantern, Window Covering, chine colle etc. This translucent and stringing paper makes it a perfect collage rice paper to add a texture interest to a painting done on rice paper or to create more depth on regular watercolor painting.
