J Whatman - 1927 & 1930 Handmade, White, Capital Deed Loan (Imitation Parchment), Grade A. 5 Pack
SOLD IN A PACK OF 5 SHEETS
Grade A - Handmade in 1927 & 1930 at Springfield Mill
Type: Imitation Parchment
Imitation Parchment papers were developed as a cost effective alternative to goatskin and calfskin animal parchments and were used as a replacement for legal deeds etc.
The manufacturing process involved a lot of heat, a lot of fibre beating and chemical treatments and resulted in a super smooth, semi-translucent paper capable of withstanding the rigours of time in much the same way as real parchment does.
This is a fantastic alternative to real animal parchment and is commonly used (when available) for botanical watercolour, calligraphy and illumination.
