Mixed Parchment Pieces, 100g, white trimmings

Mixed Parchment Pieces, 100g, white trimmings
£19.99 10 Available
Love this


This is real parchment, animal skin, not paper. The pieces are trimmings from the sides from cutting out rectangular pieces from a whole skin. They are of variable thickness, stiffness, finish, size, shape, and colour.

These pieces are good training pieces for calligraphers or might even be good for miniature paintings. They serve a bookbinder well for binding on parchment strips, are suitable for miniature parchment bindings, or for decorations .

Usually a package contains about 20 pieces, but that depends on how large and thick they are.
One side of each piece is white, the other side can be of variable colour. I made a photo showing one of the darkest and surprisingly strong patterned pieces (see last image).
The pieces are from goat, deer, cow or calf (vellum), pig, horse, or sheep. Your package might or might not contain a mix of all of them.

These pieces sit in a large box in my studio, and I usually take one after the other until the scales show me I packed 100g. But I'll try to make sure, you get a bit of variety in your pack.

If you want me to exclude certain pieces (popular requests are not to include too thick or too small pieces), I can do that for an extra fee. Contact me about the details.
