One thing to notice about these paper is that fountain pen ink takes significantly longer time to dry (depending on the ink flow, from minutes to an hour). But look at the beautiful sheen! Totally worth it!
Pictures attached were both drawn with Sailor Jentle Ink Yama-Dori and Hero 616 fountain pen. The bookmark was picked up from a local Michaels, and the other ones were these Tomoe River. The ones with purple red sheen were taken under direct desklamp light.
Yes, this paper is thin and could be used as tracing paper, but it's perfect for fountain pens...and the translucent quality let's you put a lined sheet underneath so you can write in nice straight lines, without having lines that show on your letter.
I cut some of this in half for nice half sheet sized notes.
I got this paper exclusivley to use my J.Herbin Emerald of Chivor ink on, as this paper is one of the few that will allow the red sheen of the ink to really shine.
I was very surprised when I opened the pack at how thin the sheets were, and was very worried about the ink bleeding through. This worry was completely unwarranted. The thinness of the page does mean that what I write on one side is visible on the other, but the ink itself doesnt make it very deep into the paper. The paper is not very absorbant at all, which does mean that the drying times are extra long, but are worth it for the effect that it has.
As a testament to how impervious the paper is to bleed through, my dad painted one sheet of it with a very watery solid stain. While the paper did distort due to the high water content, none of the pigment or moisture made it through the paper.
The color of the paper is ecru. You can buy ecru note card envelopes and most will match the paper fairly well. I experimented with three types of envelopes from Amazon and found two from generic suppliers to match up well. Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, Crane ecru envelopes are a slightly different hue and do not match as well as the generic suppliers I found. But this is perhaps just as well because the Crane cotton paper is so much thicker than the Tomoe River paper, it would feel like a mismatch to take the letter out of the Crane envelope.
Which leads to my final point about the paper... This is really thin paper, easily wrinkled and incredibly flimsy. It's not cheap. It's like onion skin paper in a thin Bible (though far more resistant to bleeding). But it's a paper for the display of your ink and pens, not a paper for paper's sake.
I bought this size and cut it in half with a good paper cutter to get note card-sized stationery.
