The only place in the UK to get these laser texture papers from Rolling Mill Resources! The laser cut designs on thick card are perfect for giving you crisp and detailed imprints into metal clay.
If you've every been to a class with Joy Funnell, you've probably used these and know she absolutely loves them. And now so do we! Joy's even created her own signature texture designs which you can find here: Wiggles of Joy, Tangles of Joy, Whirls of Joy, and Whirls of Joy Reversed.
These texture papers were designed to use with metal clay but work great in a rolling mill too!
Just coat the paper generously before use in a little olive oil, to ensure it doesn't stick to the metal clay. You can use these textures with silver and base metal clays. Ideally keep separate papers between different clay types, to avoid any cross contamination. This is especially important between base metal clay and silver clay.
Whilst not rubber or plastic, these papers last a surprisingly long time as long as they are looked after carefully.
The texture is approximately 127 x 178mm
I really like the pattern and detail of this paper. I have got it to go in my rolling mill, though if that does not work I will use it with PMC instead. As soon as I try them I will be back for more designs.
