Awagami Japanese Papers
A wide range of beautiful Japanese papers for all printing, drawing, painting and craft applications. All Awagami papers are acid- free and resistant to light. Those listed as having 4 deckle edges are hand-made, and have a fine laid appearance. Those without deckle edges are machine made and generally have a polished, shiny surface on one side and a matt reverse.
This translucent interleaving paper has traditionally been used as facing sheet in all older books due to its unique quality of repelling oil based inks, thus preventing sticking between pages. In recent years, it has often been used by painters and printmakers alike for works on paper and mixed media.
These 100% cotton papers are made in USA. They are acid-free and offer excellent prices for students of printmaking and drawing. The relatively smooth surface makes these papers ideal for etching and relief printing, screen-printing and monoprinting, as well as mixed media work and drawing. Available in several weights and colours. Packs of 50.
Schut Etching (Dutch Etching)
These papers have been especially tailored to Australian specifications by the Schut paper mill in Holland. Sited over an old spring, this 300-year-old mill is Holland’s oldest, and the main mill manufacturing quality rag papers for artists. This paper has been made especially for editioners and etchers. It is off-white in shade and 100% cotton with neutral pH. The heavier weight gives it a measure of buckle resistance upon framing, especially important in etchings.
