Re: [BKARTS] Onion Skin?



To Ann and others,

Yes, I used onion skin paper when I wrote to service men overseas during WW II weight was a big factor then.
Letters were censored then, I wonder how the paper fared to their methods of black outs. Never saw one that had been.

Hi Jesse et al
I still use an old pad of "Onion skin finish" Air Mail paper. It is just
fine, almost transparent paper.
It was made in Australia and designed to lessen the weight of an overseas
letter...when we used to send them.
Funnily, I sent a letter to my friend in NY just this morning, written on
the very same. It's looking a bit faded on the edges. Mine is a soft green.
I love it!

Hello List.

Has anyone here ever heard of, or worked with onionskin paper? Is
this an actual paper made using onion skin, or it just approximates
onionskin? Similar to elephant hide paper? Is there such a thing?
