First post under papers category
The process of making Arabic calligraphy paper is probably the most labour intensive in all the processes of making Arabic calligraphy tools.
It takes time, dedication and a lot of know how.
I have yet to try to make my own paper in the traditional way.
But I believe that part of the true art in Arabic calligraphy involves using the correct paper.
As I learn I am currently using normal paper.
However, as I improve I will venture into using dedicated Arabic calligraphy paper.
I will let you know about the experience and challenges, as well as where you can get your own.
In the meantime, I will let you know suitable substitutes that fulfil purposes.
