Re: [BKARTS] Sandpaper vs. blotting paper



All you have to do is get the sand-free acid-free sandpaper and you have blotter paper available for use by printmakers.

I am not sure, but I feel that sandpaper is more archival than blotting paper.



You'd actually be wrong - most blotting paper (though not all)is made
with unsized cotton fibers, far longer lasting than the extremely poorly
processed wood pulp paper that backs the vast majority of sandpaper...



Cheers,
