    100% rag, pH neutral. 40"x25.5". 120gsm. White. Smooth (wove) finish. 4 deckles.

    Takes ink well. A great, slightly soft paper to write on. One of our most popular papers. Great for paste paper. Mouldmade in France.

    Grain runs parallel to the underlined dimension.

    This paper ships separately from books/supplies and requires an extra shipping fee which is NOT included in the price of this product. Add item 'PS00' to your cart after adding large sheets of paper. (click to read details)

    Laurie Doctor and others recommend this sheet for book and portfolio covers. It folds without cracking. Judy Melvin likes it for her calligraphic painting - however this is NOT the Arches Black that will bleach correctly. When bleach is applied to this new version the paper turns pink (salmon). Grain direction is parallel to underlined dimension.

    I70. Moon Palace Sumi Ink
    Moon Palace Sumi
    The Ink is now in a bottle with a Gold Label

    While the packaging is a bit different, this is the highly sought after and highly recommended Japanese Sumi Ink. For both broad edge and pointed pen work. Dries waterproof. A great calligraphy ink.

    "I like Moon Palace better, but both Moon Palace and Best Bottle are beautiful inks. The Moon Palace has a slight sheen to it, which I like. Michael suggested this ink to me so please tell him I said, "thank you". I just finished a job of 200 invitations with Moon Palace and the ink is beautiful. I did not dilute the ink.
    A client just brought me invitations (slick paper) to address. This bride knew going into this that I probably couldn't do pointed pen. However, for fun, I tried the Sumi inks and to my surprise they worked pretty darn good. I usually have to use a sharpie on slick envelopes, yikes!!!"

    --Clair F., Jan 2011.

    2.0 oz (widemouthed jar)
    6.0 oz (180ml)
