I am wondering if any of you could please recommend papers for printmaking intaglio( e.g. collagraph, drypoint or etching) onto other than the ‘western’ type papers.
I want to make intaglio prints onto papers that are easily pliable that bed easily and retain their surface without going all damaged looking.
I would like to be able to roll up it up and place it into a cardboard tube or even to be able to fold it up as can be seen from the photos I have enclosed as examples.
Thus far those done on western papers, when rolled up and then later returned and unrolled become irrevocably damaged.
I enclose photos of 2 of Kiki Smiths artworks/ etching prints, which are itemised as having been printed on Nepalese papers. However the info I have been able to get hold of thus far, in this regard, on the internet hasn’t been helpful.
I would think that the paper would need to be strong even if it's somewhat lightweight i.e. not lower than e.g., say about 65 gsm ??.
It can be any non western paper and doesn’t have to be from any particular country.
Unfortunately I can not afford prices that are too high.
Machine made is OK too as long as it is archival
Hope you can help.
