Our range of specialist papers includes a variety of paper sheets for art and craft work, from glassine sheets which are great for protecting pastel work or illustration, to oiled manilla paper for creating stencils and newsprint sheets for quick sketches or compositions. Having the right paper for the job means that you can make the most out of your artwork and make sure it is well protected.
Glassine Sheets are smooth, thin and slightly shiny sheets of paper that are resistant to air, water and grease. They are normally translucent and they are often used to cover precious drawings or illustrations in books so you can just see some of the image through the glassine but it is protected from the opposite page. This helps to prevent rubbing or transfers within the book as the glassine sheet is used as interleaving. Glassine sheets can also be used to protect pastel, drawings artwork or even acrylic paintings - a very useful specialist paper to have to hand.
Acetate sheets are brilliant for crafts where you require a transparent layer. Use specialised markers to draw patterns, images or the written word on the surface and then it can be cut out, shaped, decorated and layered for crafts such as card making. Acetate sheets have many different uses from projectors to protective layers and decorations to mixed media artworks.
