Mixed Parchment Pieces, 100g, white trimmings

Mixed Parchment Pieces, 100g, white trimmings

Love this


This is real parchment, not paper. The pieces are trimmings from the sides from cutting out pieces of parchment from a skin. They are of variable thickness, stiffness, size, shape, and colour/tone (all vary between white and cream tones).
These parchment cut-offs are great training pieces for calligraphers or might even be good for miniature paintings. They can be used in model- and doll making. They serve a bookbinder well for binding on parchment strips, are suitable for miniature parchment bindings, or for decorations in original Coptic style. (Coptic bindings were often decorated by punching holes and cutting slits into the covering leather and then lace in thin parchment strips.) I have patched pieces of these together and used them as covers for limp parchment bindings with a great rustic effect.
I have all these pieces in a large box, and if you choose the "mixed as they come" option, I'll take one after the other from the top.
If you choose "sorted by hand", I'll look at them before packing. You could choose to only buy bendable pieces, or only really stiff pieces, or those that have two white sides, have two smooth sides, ... Let me know what you need, and I'll then put aside by hand, those that don't fit. Your specification has to be simple enough so that I can quickly decide whether or not to put a specific piece for you.
