Re: [BKARTS] Glue morphing to paper grain

Einspruch Ihrer Ehren. Assuming it does expand evenly in all directions, if it is glued/affixed along one of those dimensions it will be restrained in it's ability to contract and hence cockling will occur. The no grain argument only holds if the sheet is not restrained. For what it's worth, Tim's papers, and most handmades for that matter can really pull on a board.

Tim Barrett likes to say that handmade junk is still junk. Most handmade paper has at least some grain (take a sheet, lay it flat, measure its footprint, then dampen it thoroughly and see in which direction it grows: if it grows by the same length both vertically and horizontally, it doesn't have much grain).
