When I strat printing, I just want to have a cheap and easy media that can fulfill my satisfaction on print making.so...after hours of searching- "Yasutomo Japanese Sketch Paper" comes out of result. I use speedball water soluble ink(till- now) because then I don't have to clean up oil mess due to my inexperienced skill and knowledge of print making.
and it is not untill later in my block printing lessons i known the term "sized" mean. but this sketch paper serve me well --i still use it for most of my test print. its $6.48 for 48 sheets 9*12 ... less than 14cents each.
