Rives BFK: A Love Affair
I first used Rives BFK in a monoprinting class last spring at Mass Art. It was love at first feel. The paper is like velvet. And every single mark or texture prints so wonderfully.
I bought a full pack of sheets and had used it for making some books but I hadn't used it for the gelatin prints. Let's face it, with the gelatin prints there is so much waste that I could not bear to waste a single sheet of this divine paper.
But now, as I gain more proficiency with my printing, I am able to go ahead and use the "good" paper. The results have been beyond my expectations.
