About Washi Paper Mosaics
My Washi Paper mosaics are matted with 100% black cotton rag mats or archive quality mats and placed in solid wood frames. It is best to display the mosaics out of direct sunlight, just like you would with any piece of fine art.
The paper I use is Japanese Chiyogami, which is a type of Washi Paper. The white base paper used to be made by hand, and it is now made by machine. The white base papers are hand silk-screened with acrylic paint in a labor intensive process that can be viewed in this YouTube video. Chiyogami is a very resilient, long-lasting paper.
The mosaics are finished with an acrylic finish to seal and protect it.
Here are the specific dimensions for these mosaics:
- Outside Frame Dimensions: 15 1/8′ x 19 1/8″
- Mat Size: 14″ x 18″
