Rice Paper

Our Rice Paper is perfect for both beginners and advanced crafters! It is much easier to work with than classic napkins. The paper is handmade, 100% natural and acid free. It is water and fade resistant as well as being very thin, lightweight 30gsm, semi-transparent and naturally white.

Mulberry rice paper is the original decoupage paper.  It typically contains clearly visible fibres of irregular size, arranged in all directions all over the paper surface, giving it an original and interesting look.

You can use these papers for decoupage, scrapbooking, collage art, journaling, and furniture, whole or cut up. If you tear rather than cut, the edges will blend beautifully into the background. The colours of the images appear most vibrant when applied over white or light backgrounds.

WHAT YOU GET: 6 images measuring 8 x 10.5” inch printed onto 6 sheets of A4 Mulberry Rice Paper. The images are all different but adhere to a theme, like colour, style or type. Just remember colour varies greatly from screen to screen.

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT food grade rice paper and is NOT edible! We cannot guarantee that the colour you see on your screen accurately portrays the true colour of the product.

DECOUPAGE is the art of decorating an object by gluing coloured paper cut-outs onto it in combination with special paint effects, gold leaf and other decorative elements. Commonly, an object like a small box or an item of furniture is covered by cut-outs from magazines or from purpose-manufactured papers. Each layer is sealed with varnish (often multiple coats) until the "stuck on" appearance disappears and the result looks like painting or inlay work. The traditional technique used 30 to 40 layers of varnish which were then sanded to a polished finish.

IT’S MUCH EASIER NOW: Just apply mod podge to the surface of your object then smooth on the rice paper. Starting in the centre of the sheet and push outwards with a cloth ball or fingers to eliminate wrinkles and bubbles. Coat with mod podge or other finishing medium and allow to dry.
