White Tissue-foil Paper
Format : 23.6"x23.6" (60x60 cm)
Origin : Thailand
How I use this paper:
When I want to fold a model with a white color, I often use the white side of a classic paper foil. However, there are several disadvantages to usie this paper and white tissue-foil is very insteresting to fill these gaps:
1) The white-face of the classic foil is smooth and uniform and so unattractive => The white tissue-foil bring us a nice textured surface that catches the light.
2) The metallized face of the classic foil is unsightly and should be covered, usually gluing Unryu or Tissue-papers. However, the metallic effect of the foil still spring through => On contrary, the metallized face of the white tissue-foil is spangled, which cancels all reflections. Thus, the metallic appearance does not cross through Unryu or tissue paper.
Here is an example of folding with my dog where I use the white tissue-foil glue on a black Unryu:
- The white face catch the light (see the shadows on the tail)
- No metallic sheen appears through the black Unryu.
Important : Each sheet has a size of 60x60 cm. That's why, the sheets will be sent folded (final size = 30 x 30 cm = 11.8"x11.8") . They therefore inevitably contain creases but of course, the few traces will not interfere in the final appearance of your model.

This paper is excellent for more complex models. I bought this paper to make Eric Joisel's rooster and I think it will work well. I also hope to make the ancient dragon from this. It feels like a very thin and strong paper. Both sides are very similar in appearance which is a good thing. The large size is really helpful. I can't find this size anywhere else!
