This is a wonderful product offered by wonderfully helpful folks at Blue Heron. It has made mounting my sumi-e work so much easier, less messy, and by for more successful. I followed the clear and helpful instructions offered by Henry on YouTube and by Victoria right here on the website and experienced no problems whatsoever. Everything worked exactly as they demonstrated. I highly recommend the silicone dry mounting paper as a happy solution for the thin and wrinkly rice paper created by brush painting. Be sure that your iron is the proper temperature, that you don't 'soak' your rice paper (just dampen as in the video) and iron on a firmly padded surface. Victoria suggesst 3 or 4 layers of denim; I used two layers of heavy, raw, canvas. I also found that the silicone paper should be cut with an X-acto knife rather than scissors because the silicone tends to cling to the scissors and pull away from it backing. The knife avoids that problem. All in all I hight recommend this product and Blue Heron!
