Thai Unryu Paper (Gold/Silver Leaf Flecks)

Unryu paper is made primarily in Thailand. Unryu is a tissue weight rice papers. Most of the colors are translucent and make ideal collage and screen papers. Their translucency also makes them ideal for chine colle, encaustic painting, lamp shades, and paper sculpture. They feature heavy kozo fibers running throughout; making them surprisingly strong for such a thin paper.

These sheets of Unryu are made with flecks of gold and/or silver leaf embedded in the paper pulp. The leaf used is aluminum and brass based; it is not sterling or 23K leaf.
