Hosho Student Handmade Paper
This handmade paper from Japan has been a staple in the fine art printmaking world seemingly forever. Hosho is one of the "treasured" handmade papers being manufactured in Japan. This paper, although a sulphite sheet, is still quite strong. The lack of sizing without compromising overall surface strength make both these papers perfect for etching, hand lithography, woodblock printing, printmaking and archival restoration. Conservators use Hosho for backing and hinging fine art in the framing process.
White, 17" x 22", acid-free, four deckles and 95gsm.
Paper available from Store Pickup only.
FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they're now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a "toy store for artists." 80 years in and they're still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
