This 100% Cotton Paper has been designed for 'inlaying' prints and drawings to achieve a standard size and give a handling edge other than the artwork itself. There are two main techniques for making an Œinlay mount. The first being a tissue bridge where a hole is cut in the inlay paper slightly larger than the artwork and a thin Japanese tissue similar to ŒWhisper Tissue’ joins the artwork to the inlay paper. The second being the chamfered type where a hole smaller than the artwork is cut out and the edges of the opening are sanded or feathered to create a thin and fine joining edge which will give a seamless, level join. The joint should be weaker than the artwork so that it gives way before the artwork if subjected to an extreme temperature and humidity change. The inlay paper is designed to be as docile and dimensionally stable as possible and thereby minimise any cockling and tension with the original. It is offered in Museum Cream colour to match TimecareË Heritage Cotton Core Museum Mounting Board.
