Well yes. It is the real rice paper that I am working with - the
edible type. That is probably why I am encountering so many

damp and hence a little difficult, to say the least. I used it as an
experiment for a book of recipes that I am making, but it seems I
should proceed to plan B...
Thanks for all your advice, in any event.
