Thin but works as intented
from Hermon, Maine
Ordered this paper for a printmaking class I am currently taking. Although the paper is thinner than I thought it would be it is holding up well to being immersed in water and run through the press over a copper etched plate and a plexiglas monoprint.
Great weight for many mediums
By Studio D
from Philadelphia, PA
This paper has a beautiful texture and hold up perfectly even when completely covered in layers of acrylic paint. No curling at all! I've layered acrylic toning, spattering, painting and pastels. Great weight and deckle edges!
Great paper (well worth the money)
I mainly use this BFK Rives for monotype, fantastic results. Worth every penny. I do use for drypoint etchings as well with great results.
from Columbia, SC
The paper was well packaged and kept safe in a plastic sheet and then set in multiple pieces of cardboard. I am currently working on some intaglio prints and I can't wait to print them out on the BFK.

High quality, good price, a little hard to use
By Camilla Taylor
from Los Angeles, CA
I bought the rolled paper as the large sheets were sold out. This was the cheaper option, but beware, there's a lot of labor involved in relaxing the paper before you can use it. My method is to roll out a length of it, weight down the corners, and lightly spritz with water. After about an hour, it won't snap back into the roll and you can tear it down.
Used for eco printing.... resulting in beautiful prints and sturdy to use for journaling
