Re: [BKARTS] Mirror-like papers



Dick Blick does a great online business:  http://www.dickblick.com/. 
I've dealt with them repeatedly, and the service is rapid.

I noted that it came in the following colors: cobalt blue, red, gold, gunmetal and mirror. The major problem of course is scratching, which can easily occur when it rubs against another surface. I'm considering placing tissue between the inside covers and pages.

	The Belgian surrealist painter Renee Magritte entered a cheese store in
Brussels to purchase a wheel of Swiss cheese.  The owner pulled a wheel
from the front window, but Magritte said he preferred the one on the
back counter.
	?But they are identical,? the owner protested.
	?No,? Magritte insisted.  ?This one?s been stared at.?
