Paper sample Zerkall Velin, 250 gr., 18x23cm (7x9") 7315/1, "waterleaf" unsized, 7315/1 rough

Mould made paper. Acid free, calcium carbonate buffered. Four deckle edges. No watermark. "Waterleaf"; no sizing, no glue. This makes the paper more vulnerable than other sized papers. The presence of long cotton fibers makes the paper still fairly strong.

Mould made paper. Acid free, calcium carbonate buffered. Four deckle edges. No watermark. "Waterleaf"; no sizing, no glue. This makes the paper more vulnerable than other sized papers. The presence of long cotton fibers makes the paper still fairly strong. The open paper fibers absorb the printing ink very well. This paper is less suitable for "water-based-inks"; the ink may start "bleeding" because of the high absorption. Traditional oil based inks don't have this problem. Dampen the paper moderately (otherwise too fragile). This paper is perfect to get all fine details out of a plate.
25% cotton, 75% high alpha cellose, "off-white", rough but soft surface.
