I don’t even think I can wrap my mind around all of the things a mixed-media artist could use this for. It doesn’t tear, absorb moisture or discolor with age. I think I’m most excited to try using Grafix’s Matte Dura-Lar. This particular film has a matte translucent drawing surface on two sides. The film will also accept lead, ink, and colored pencil. You can even erase on it. (or would that be off it?) Couldn’t you just imagine a cool journal with see through pages, where one drawing blends into the next one? How very cool!
