The above swabs were done as one of my earliest experience with Tomoe River Paper. I did these (as I do all of my swabs) with a cotton swab saturated with the ink and the “scrubbed” onto the paper. Even though the paper is super-duper thin (and wrinkles easily) , there was zero bleed-through. None.
The colors just…pop!…from this paper. This is the way the ink manufacturers must mean for their inks to be experienced.
Here’s a link to the full-size image. It’s big. It’s worth the load time.

So. If you’re in love with paper and inks and pens and such – Tomoe River Paper is a must try. It’s definitely not an everyday paper for me (wrinkles easily, you know), but wow. Wow.
