mold-made paper

A deckle-edged paper resembling handmade paper but actually produced on a cylinder machine or a cylindrical mold revolving in a vat of paper pulp. The sizes of the sheets are determined by dividing the surface of the cylinder with rubber bands which also create the deckle edges. The deckle edge may also be simulated by cutting the web with a jet of water. Mold-made paper is used in limited editions where a handmade or simulated handmade paper is desired. (58 , 307 )
