Review of Jeffrey H on Pack Alios Kraft 28 gsm - 45x45 cm - 15 sheets

pack ryujin kraft 45x45 cm 15 sheets origami scrapbooking Pack Alios Kraft 28 gsm - 45x45 cm - 15 sheets
Description :
Pack 15 sheets Natural Kraft 45x45 cm (17.7"x17.7").

The kraft paper is a particularly resistant paper. Kraft also means strength/power in German. But it is usually too thick or too poor to make beautiful origami models.

Kraft paper proposed here is exceptional because:
- Extremely thin: 28g/m²
- Beautiful and high quality

- Resistant and strong
- Wet strength
(Treaty for fogging - perfect for wet-folding)

In particular, it probably offers the best combination fine / resistance of all the papers, which makes it particularly interesting for super complex folding like Ryuzin by Kamiya Satoshi.
This paper is also particularly suitable to glue on foil papers.

This Kraft paper is usualy NOT available for sale. To get it, it was necessary to buy it directly to the factoty, then we cut ourself the kraft in square!
Vincent Floderer and Crimp's team have chosen this Kraft paper to realize their crumpling.

Important: Each sheet has a size of 45x45 cm (17.7" x 17.7"). That's why, the pack will be sent folded (final size = 22.5x22.5 cm ). Sheets therefore inevitably contain creases but of course, the few traces will not interfere in the final appearance of your model.

Thinner than "traditional" origami paper, more translucent, and much less stiff, so takes some getting used to; but it's definitely stronger.

The one downside is this particular Kraft paper does have these shaded lines, easy to miss from the photographs as image artifacts but very noticeable IRL. Would prefer a uniform solid color throughout.
