This sampler package is ideal for printmakers looking to try an assortment of translucent Japanese papers. Mokuhanga means blockprint so this assortment showcases carefully selected papers ideal for wood block and lino. Don’t be shy; washi is so much stronger than it first appears. Try them for letterpress, bookbinding and Gelli plates. The papers are also good for collage and some drawing.
When you find a paper you love from this sampler package you may find it available in stock or by special order in large sheets and rolls.
