Art and Craft Supplies Chiyogami Paper

The Art of a sheet of Chiyogami Paper

Chiyogami Japanese paper is incredibly beautiful, so much so that it can be admired just as a sheet of paper before you do anything with it. Chiyogami paper is used for all sorts of art and craft activities, it is used as origami sheets, bespoke invitation paper, card making, décor, decoupage, it can be used in bookbinding, journaling, mixed media, printmaking, anything art and crafty really where you want an oriental design. It is a unique type of paper that has a repetitive design making it very graphic based. In its making process each design is carefully screen printed onto the sheet of paper which allows for bold, rich colour combinations. Even today in the twentieth century this is very much still a handmade Japanese paper. It can usually be found in most art supplies store alongside Awagami and Washi paper sheets and rolls. Japanese paper is popular among many creative souls but is a particular favourite among printmakers.

As a team of artists and creators ourselves working in fully equipped studios, including a printmaking studio we have come to see Chiyogami a4 sheets, large sheets and Japanese rice paper sheets being used in Chine-Collé printing techniques quite often. The elaborate but elegant designs of these papers pair beautifully with rice paper glueJapanese printing blocks and block printing inks to create some truly amazing Zen like artwork. Each piece of paper can be re-invented to create some truly unique bespoke designs. The Chine-Collé process can be embraced by young and old and is only limited by your own imagination.

Because Japanese papers can embrace many different artistic techniques you can generally find them in both art supplies stores and in a paper specialty store. When adding ChiyogamI to your art supplies don’t forget to check out with our artist VIP membership for lots of arty karma. It will also keep you up to date with art classes and workshops with some of Australia’s finest artisans.
