Good for fish printig
By printer of fishes
from Newport oregon
Comments about Thai Unryu:
I use this paper for gyotaku.-fish printing It has a nice weight- 25gsm, and is strong enough for most fish. The fibers are not overwhelming, and it dyes well when I add color to the gyotaku. I use two types- the white unryu and the kozo chiri unryu. Both work well, but the chiri kozo unryu is stronger. Sometimes the large bark pieces in the chiri paper are distracting or are in the wrong place for the image, but overall it is my go-to paper for gyotaku
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

love this paper
By Rompin dog
I love this paper and have been using it for years. I use it in many different ways. I love the transparency of it but yet it is strong paper and comes in so many beautiful colors! I have tried many other Dick Blick decorative papers but this is my favorite.
Works great for calligraphy and pen and ink drawings!

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

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.
