Re: [BKARTS] Paper grain

Get it wet, run it between your finger nails along two perpendicular edges, gently pull it along two perpendicular edges, gently fold it on itself in two directions. With the latter, make sure it is the same amount of material. You can use any of these with just about any thickness of paper.
