Very lightweight Japanese paper suitable for Chine-Colle.

This is a strong, very lightweight tissue-like paper. Its silky texture is suitable for printmaking and wood block prints. The Gampi fibres that make these sheets provide their silky quality. Semi translucent, semi-gloss sheen on the surface. Gampi is unsized but has a natural 'sized' finish for crisp lines with no bleed.

Chine-colle is a special technique in printmaking, in which the image is transferred to a surface that is bonded to a heavier support in the printing process. One purpose is to allow the printmaker to print on a much more delicate surface, such as Japanese paper or linen, which pulls finer details off the plate. Another purpose is to provide a background colour behind the image that is different from the surrounding backing sheet.

Just what I wanted - well packed and fast delivery with my other items ordered online. My recent experiences on other Jackson's Art purchases can also be described as "Excellent" (Posted on 18/11/2014)
