Papel de Bhutan - Bhutanese paper

My Bhutanese paper has arrived and I love it! It´s actually more beautiful in real life - although it´s paper, it´s thick and really strong and has a woody feel to it but you can´t really tell that from the pictures.

 I´m going to be making black ink drawings on them so will update soon!
