These rice paper rolls are ideal for Sumi painting, wood block printing, bookmaking, collage- any time that you need clean, crip rice paper. This is Hosho paper- this type of paper is heavier in weight than our other rolls of rice paper. It is very bright white; cold pressed on one side and hot pressed on the other side. Hosho is considered to be professional grade paper for use with Sumi painting and scroll making; it is of course also perfectly suited for beginners who want to use a very high quality paper. We also have this paper in large sheets. Made in Japan.
