Regular price £175.00

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.
