An Introduction To Using Mineral Paper
Mineral Paper is a unique surface and is different from synthetic paper. Tear and water resistant, it does not wrinkle and can be used on both sides. Mineral Paper accepts any media wet or dry and the bright white surface allows for crisp lines and saturated colours. Mineral Paper does not have a plastic feel and has just the right amount of absorbency for a wide variety of creative techniques. Use an Inkjet Printer to experiment with altering and working back into images.

Step-by-Step:Mineral Paper Printed through an Inkjet Printer
Use an Inkjet Printer to print an image. Ensure your ink IS NOT fast drying or smudge proof, otherwise this technique will not work as well.
Use an atomizer to lightly spray water onto the image – is will cause the ink to move and run. Less is best.
Use an Aquash Brush to make controlled water marks on your image and move the printed ink.
The finished piece will demonstrate amazing watery effects.
Step-by-Step:Food Dye onto Mineral Paper
Eco Colour Food Dye applied with a brush moves and blends beautifully on Mineral Paper. Allow colours to mix on the paper by starting with a lighter colour and blending a darker colour into it.
Sprinkle Rock Salt on to thewet Food Dye for interesting results.
