Usuyou Gampi White-M-0222

$ 15.00

The Chinese characters for gampi literally translates as  "goose skin". This paper is sometimes referred to as "silk tissue".

This pure white gampi is thin, and ideal for chine colle, etching, as well as many types of printmaking methods.

Paper Connection's Gampi Collection is made from 100% gampi, a lustrous, silky fiber native to Japan and other parts of Asia. Both in its sheet form or in the raw fiber form, gampi by its natural make-up reacts to ink as if it had sizing on it.  In other words, it holds ink on its crisp, smooth surface beautifully.  At Paper Connection, we call it the "queen of printmaking". 

Measures 24.8 x 37 inches, 10g/m².

Please NOTE: current stock has some puckering on short side, which may not be noticeable by the time you receive it.  However, you can certainly iron this paper!

This paper is also STOCKED IN 10-METER ROLLS; please see our "Rolled Papers" Collection.

 Price will increase in 2021 due to the difficulty in obtaining gampi fiber.
