漉きによる加工:水玉紙

漉きによる加工:水玉紙
2.5
This is another technique in which a thin layer of blue paper is layered over a finished layer of white paper to create a two-layer structure. Before the light blue layer dries, water droplets are dropped from above which, on impact, displace the blue fibers leaving white circles (hence the name “polka dots paper”). The example you see is from the 17th century; I have never seen an earlier one, so it is likely that this paper began to be used around that time.

漉きによる加工の最後の例は、水玉模様です。

水玉紙は、漉き上げた紙の上に、藍か紫に色染めした紙料を薄く全体に重ね漉きして、それが乾く前に上から水滴を垂らして、その衝撃により水玉模様を加えたものです。先に説明した3種類とは異なって、古い使用例が見つからず、17世紀に発明されたもののようです。どうも本文の料紙にはあまり向かないようで、料紙には向かず、表紙や色紙・短冊で見かけることが多い加工方法です。
