100 sheets A4 Embossed Construction Paper

(1 customer review)

£9.99

This is a pack of  150 sheets 190gsm art paper in 10 bright colours. The paper has a subtle embossed finish similar to that found on on Canson Mi-Tientes paper. This makes it visually more attractive, giving your models some “depth”. The paper is also suitable for “wet-folding” (video tutorial coming soon) and gives a great range of colours to suit a variety of subjects – you can easily cut the A4 to create squares with which to fold.

    This is probably the heaviest, thickest paper available from this site. I bought some as an experiment for wet and dry tension folding. At 190gsm it isn’t going to suit lots of origami, but for less complex models, it has some good features:
    – it isn’t easy to get paper you can wet fold in such bright colours.
    – it is possible to fold wet or dry – don’t wet it too much though or the paper will weaken and tear. I guess this paper is 100% wood pulp, so is less strong than more expensive papers that have long cotton fibres.
    – while it isn’t heavily sized the paper will take some shaping when wet and will hold position once dried. I don’t expect the models will last as long as they would from more expensive watercolour paper like arches, or a pastel paper like canson, and the paper is less beautiful than either of those, but if you want to experiment and sketch out ideas without using up you best paper this works well. I won’t be using it for “exhibition” pieces but it has its place in designing models when I want to try things out.

    The only trouble is, my children have discovered this is great for paper crafts so are now using up my pack at a much faster rate than me. I have star reared for origami, I am sure it rates higher if you want to use it as intended as construction paper for other paper crafts.
