These are excellent paper...

These are excellent paper for doing etegami. They have a fairly high level of
"bleed" so your ink and your watercolor are bound to be a little difficult to
control, but the effect for etegami is quite lovely and charming. The previous
commenter said that the paper cannot handle erasing -- that is quite true. The
paper is meant to be used for etegami, where there traditionally is no use of
pencil and no erasing. The quality of the paper is delicate, meant to enhance
the "bleed" of ink and watercolor, and it does not deal well with the abrasion
of erasing. If you intend to do drawing with pencil and may need to erase, do
not use this type of paper, as that is not the intended purpose.
