Kathie paints all of her batiks on Ginwashi rice paper. It’s light weight and semi-transparent and is full of small fibers, which add a lot of texture to your pieces. This paper is used for all batiks, whether full-size or card size.
If you’d like to print the original Ginwashi batiks designs (cards below, or even your larger size designs), do not use the Ginwashi paper. It’s too thin and will jam your printer. Instead we recommend you use Kinwashi Stationery paper, which is meant for ink-jet printers. It’s thicker and full of wonderful fibers, which make it look like the original batik when printed!
Instructions for printing are given below in the KINWASHI section.
