Coated with an emulsion made with real seashell powder!
Shell Paper is a multi-media paper made with actual shell emulsion, specially designed to accept acrylics, watercolors, inks, pastels, and even oil pastels! The paper mounts easily to any board surface to make unique plein air painting boards. Imported from Vietnam, this paper is sure to change the rules and open new creative avenues for artists everywhere. The colors are made using organic pigments, and natural white adds a beautiful pearlescent effect to transparent washes. Surface is lustrious and semi-absorbant.
