Mitsumata Tissue Light Japanese Washi
Mitsumata Tissue Light is handmade in Japan from 100% mitsumata fiber. Traditionally, in Japan this paper is used for backing gold leaf! It is strong enough for chine colle, collage or drawing with ink, yet thin and translucent enough for layering. Mitsumata is considered to be softer and more pliable than kozo. It takes twice as long as kozo to grow. The mitsumata fiber is cooked in slaked lime, and dried on wooden boards. This paper is originally produced as a wider sheet and then cut in half. This paper is popular for chine colle, as well as relief printing and collage or paper mache.
