Needles for embossing (one or two) (S219). Some cardboard paper (at least 170 lb – 200 lb) for cutting models. Some artistic paper: Fabriano Rosaspina or other handmade, thicker papers are great.

Drafting tape is a less sticky version of masking tape and is for temporary taping. Use it to attach your paper to your drawing board or table. With many papers it will peel off without damaging the paper. You should slowly and carefully peel of the tape. Also, leave the items taped only as long as necessary. These kinds of tapes can become permanently adhered to surfaces over time, especially with exposure to bright light.
