I am a relief block printer and use Thai Unryu paper to create handprinted block prints for retail purchase. This paper is strong enough to print on and is a good value for the size of paper.

My husband is a block printer. He likes to use this for his prints. He has had some problem making holes in it, but he thought that was from overworking it when he was adding color.
love this paper, used for 20 years

I am a nature printer and use this paper in all my classes-it is very strong, and the inclusions add to the over all image. It rare tears, works well wet or dry, and my students love it.
Great paper arrived in perfect condition
By Kids book painter

This paper works well for collage. I'm not sure if the type "black ink" the review is for was the white paper I ordered, but my order was correct. I love how it gets stronger with acrylic paint so it can be easily cut for collage. Has a very organic feel with visible fibers, unless you choose to block them out with heavier paint.

Decent paper but on the thin side.
By Chesapeake Bay Fish Prints
from Suffolk, VA
I use unryu fiber paper from a variety of sources for Gyotaku, Japanese fish rubbing/printing. This paper has a nice even color and fiber but in general 25 gsm weight paper is too thin for Gyotaku unless it's light color because in order to get a contrasting image you need to use a sufficient amount of ink and it bleeds through the paper. I've made a handful of really great rubbings on this paper but most don't turn out. It would be great if they offered all these papers in 35 or 40 gsm but so far it's near impossible to find so this is about your only choice. I personally no longer use it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Excellent for its diversity
from Vestaburg, MI
I bought the paper to use as a background backing in a matte for my photography. My wife quickly appropriated it for her watercolor and pastels. For my use, it added an interesting surrounding texture. I am now experimenting with printing photos directly to the paper on my Epson.
Gorgeous, great for collage
I just love the beauty of this paper's color and texture. I use it a lot in my collage work because of its gorgeous thready look and the variety of color value. I got several colors and love them all. The only difficulty is that I am using them too fast and will soon have to order more. :-)
Wonderful collage paper
By The PaintBox Girl
from Highland, NY
I use the Thai Unryu for my mixed media collage work as often as I can. Although tissue thin and easy to cut, the Thai Unryu paper is incredibly strong. It's perfectly suited to work with acrylic mediums and paint, laying flat or enabling me to create interesting textures should folds or creases occur by happy accident. The colors are true, hold fast when used with water and seem as vibrant as the day they arrived from Dick Blick. Big happy face for this artist!
