[BKARTS] paper (and paste) properties



Dear Emma,

In Autumn 2000, we published an article in our newsletter 'Skin Deep'
titled 'About Paper Grain' by Richard P Grant.  Although not directly
related to your question, it does have a bearing on the subject.  It can be
found at http://www.hewit.com/sd10-pape.htm

I hope it helps,

best wishes,

David

> Hi

> I'm looking for information about what happens when paper is pasted. I'm
> interested in reference books, web sites, etc.
>
> I know that when a piece of paper is pasted to another it may warp...I
> know that thicker paper will pull less than thinner paper...but there must
> be more to know!
>
> I had fun testing paper properties with these covers (note: the page's
> contents will change in the next week or so, but there will be a link to
> the pictures from this page):

> Note: there are three different kinds of paper--all of different weights
> (plus mat board). Even though the boards were dried under weight they
> started to curl/warp when I took them out. (They must not have been dry.)
>
> Other than waiting patiently for things to dry (and using equal weight
> paper), is there anything I can do to keep the final board flat?
