Washi is a type of paper made in japan. Made from long natural fibers, it is stronger then ordinary paper made from wood pulp. It is very smooth and pliable. Washi is also very interesting because it has a very marked texture (similar to VOG papers) to fold pretty models. However, this type of paper remains usualy difficult to shape.
Washi DELUXE includes a metallized layer, applied on one face : the sheet becomes as malleable as foil paper and can be use for complex model and to shape your folds.
