Every print comes signed and numbered.
I recommend putting white paper behind the print when framing to enhance the texture.
It's a handmade paper so keep in mind there can be some small holes or fiber clots.
About paper: Resho is an artists’ handmade paper made from the inner bark or bast fibre of de-nar, a Bhutanese variety of lokta. De-nar has a darker tone and harder surface than both Nepalese lokta and mitsumata. It is a native plant of the Himalayan foothills found above 3000 metres. De-nar is a sustainable and renewable resource. Plants are cropped above ground level and can be reharvested after 3-4 years. The paper is made using the traditional Himalayan floating mould method in which the pulp is poured onto the paper frame. The paper is sun dried on the frame.The size and colour of this paper varies often giving each sheet a ‘rustic’ appearance.
Due to the nature of printmaking, each print is one of a kind so it may look a little bit different than others. There can be some errors, for example some ink stains or small unprinted areas. If you are looking for a perfectly printed print, this is not one of them.
