The visit to the Mill that makes our paper was amazing. Although I had seen it before, l learn something new with each visit. The images above give you just a glimpse of the process. The top image shows all the ingredients being broken down in a large VAT. The middle image shows the process a bit down the line as the newly formed paper is being heat dried. As the paper moves along the rollers the heat intensifies. The bottom image shows the paper coming off the machine The cream colored surface is the felts that give the papers their amazing surface.
The Papers made for Richeson are "Mould Made Papers". This process creates a paper as close to hand made as psossible without being hand made. The lifting ability and strength of this paper is phenomonal....another great feature is the paper does not emit an order when wet.
If you are interested in more information on the Mould Made papers offered at JRC please e-mail me at
