Copperplate printmaking and drawing paper is heavy-weight 140 lb. (300gsm), mold-made with 100%% high alpha cellulose, ideal for printmaking techniques such as intaglio and lithography. It is chlorine- and acid-free, has a neutral PH, four natural deckled edges and a medium textured surface. Soft handle paper is unsized for absorbent qualities. Paper can take deep embossing without cracking around the plate edges and dries flat after printing. It has a watermark of an encircled rooster. Made in Germany.
