Traditional Rice Paper

Rice Papers are not actually made using rice  (or even rice plant fibers!). The term "rice paper" comes from the translucent nature of the papers themselves; the paper has a translucency that is similar to a grain of rice. The papers in this department are mass produced (by hand and by machine) using Kozo and Gampi fibers. They are surprisingly strong, durable, and versatile. Ideal for printmaking, sumi painting, ink, watercolor, drawing, encaustic, and collage.
