Paper for Cards
- There is no need to press or flatten marbled paper that has been
created on the correct weight paper. Heavy weights are a bit more
difficut to lay in the tank (air pockets), but worth the effort. Once
thoroughly dry (by hanging), the paper can be cut to size on a paper
cutter very quickly. No pressing, no ironing. Commercial, high
quality cover stock is the best since it will not be used for archival
purposes. However, it is generally only sold to the printing trade and
not for personal use. Perhaps someone out there has an outlet for you.
- Thank you all for your suggestions.
I don't know where I will be able to obtain the commercial grade
card stock, but I am having some success in flattening my paper. I
believe the problem is lack of control over the drying process. The
edges dry quicker than the center which creates a fluting effect, so
I am now experimenting on controlling the drying.
