Mineral Paper


Mineral Paper is a unique surface and is different from synthetic paper. Tear and water resistant, it does not wrinkle and can be used on both sides. Mineral Paper accepts any media wet or dry and the bright white surface allows for crisp lines and saturated colours. Mineral Paper does not have a plastic feel and has just the right amount of absorbency for a wide variety of creative techniques. Use an Inkjet Printer to experiment with altering and working back into images.

 Step-by-Step: Mineral Paper Printed through an Inkjet Printer

Step One
Use an Inkjet Printer to print an image. Ensure your ink IS NOT fast drying or smudge proof, otherwise this technique will not work as well. 


Step Two
Use an atomizer to lightly spray water onto the image – is will cause the ink to move and run. Less is best.
