These laser texture papers are perfect for giving you a crisp and detailed imprints into metal clay - as well as ideal for using in rolling mills with sheet metals of course! The design is laser cut on thick card.
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.
When used with metalclay, whilst not rubber or plastic, these papers last a surprisingly long time as long as they are looked after carefully.
The texture part is approximately 85 x 55mm (the full sheet is about 95 x 55mm).
All the RS laser textures are handmade by a small family business in Powys, Wales.
This is truly lovely , but you need to be sure to coat with something like olive oil quite generously... the first time I used it I did not use enough oil which caused the silver clay to stick which in turn was difficult to get off, luckily I did not ruin the whole card. I am now really pleased with the result (now I know what i'm doing!).
