I believe Dick Blick may have a black Kraft paper on a roll. You can cut off whatever. It has two sides, different textures, one marbled great. it is thin though at 50 pounds. Their Sulfite paper works great also. Only trouble I have is some batches are long grain and others are short, there is no finding out, they haven't a clue, the boxes are not marked and they are from China. I just get what I get and separate into two piles. The cartons were one way or another, never mixed. It's not so bad, some people prefer short grain and some like long.

Subject: [Marbling] current papers that work?
Hi all - I am once again searching for papers that work for marbling. I particularly like to marble on black. Nancy at colophon has some black but she can't reorder after that is gone. My favorite of all time was Filare but that hasn't been around for a while. If anyone knows of a stash in a warehouse somewhere, I would be interested.
When I talk to a paper supplier, what should I ask for? I know that acid free does not guarantee a paper that is suitable. There was some rich conversation on this list a while back but I wasn't sure how to find that thread. If someone else knows where I could find that, that would be wonderful
I am also interested in white or cream paper. The sulfite drawing paper made by Pacon is working well. However, I tried sulfite drawing paper in another brand that did not work well.
Thanks in advance for your input.
