    - It has all the best qualities that I look for in paper. The texture it has is a nice balance of rough and smooth. It handled the watercolor extremely well as well as the cyanotype formula. There was little to no bleed through with any of the mediums that I used on it.

    According to my previous experience, I always prefer using Japanese Kozo for printing more than Thai Kozo. I got great color quality on HW002. The natural color tone on HW002 works great for me. It is relatively affordable and easy to use. The paper is sturdy as Washi.

    It worked the best for all the techniques I tried. It was great overall: the texture, color,  thickness and price. Other paper worked great too.

    It is very strong but also delicate, and would work well for a variety of applications. I also like the soft natural color of it.

    The colors fly off the page with these two as they show so vibrantly
