Karlyn uses this masa paper for her monoprints.
Four sheets per pack, each sheet is 15 1/2″ x 10 3/4″. Masa paper is an archival, very white Japanese paper that leaves batik-like cracks on the surface. During the process of working with this paper, you actually break the sizing into fractured patterns often by crumpling this paper up, then flattening it out. Click on the image above for an example of a painting done on masa paper, and a lesson from Karlyn’s book “Searching for the Artist Within.”
