Re: [BKARTS] Specialty Papers

Hi Meliva:

I received your photo in good shape.

It looks like a pastepaper with the pattern
created with sponges.

I'm somewhat confused that the paper is already
laid into your box, rather than on the book you say
you're trying to match.

In any case, if my guess is correct, I think your
problem may need to be solved by contacting
someone who might custom-make the design
you're seeking. There are lists of such people
available on the internet, and I know a few
here in New Mexico.

I have a hunch that they'd be hard-pressed to
duplicate the design without some visual dissonance
vs. what you show in your picture.They may
suggest a complementary design/coloring instead.

Would you like me to contact one or two to
see what they'd suggest?
