This beautifully textured paper is made with a mulberry fiber base. Heavier strands of manila hemp (jute fiber) are scattered heavily throughout, creating a birds nest appearance. These papers are wonderful for collage and mixed media work. They are ideal papers for use with encaustic painting as that they will become more translucent as they saturate with beeswax. Also a terrific paper for sculpture, scrapbooking, book making, card making, and all types of collage.
