Traced out upon palest sands
Are as my poor words,
Hasty tracks at the mercy
Of the tide's rush, wind - and time.
> OK, so what does sizing do, exactly, since you've brought it up?I don't know if it means the same thing in paper as it does in
fabric, but isn't 'sizing' roughly "stuff we put on the fabric to
make it have a certain feel"? I have the idea that this is where
people get the notion that silk e.g. is delicate: washing it removes
the sizing, changing the way it drapes, though the fiber hasn't
actually been harmed.
So putting sizing on your paper might make it easier to work with.
