Made on a cylinder mould, a traditional process, keeps the quality close to that of paper made by craft methods. The slow turning of the cylinder enables the fibres to be deposited evenly and spread in all directions over the wire. The paper is homogeneous, with a flatter surface and better wet strength. It can therefore withstand the numerous baths inherent in photographic alternative processes. Only papermaking on a cylinder mould can produce paper with deckle edges.
