Bark & Papyrus Papers

These papers are made in a very non-traditional way. They actually utilize bark and plant fibers in their raw form instead of being made up of processed paper pulp. Amate Bark Papers are made in Mexico, using bark that is soaked and then pounded flat to create a sheet. Papyrus is made in Egypt, using centuries old techniques where the papyrus plant is stripped down, woven, and dried into a sheet. These gorgeous, "woody" sheets make beautiful substrates for gouache and acrylic painting. They are also superb for collage, lamp shades, paper sculpture, bookmaking arts, and scrapbooking.
