Default Rice Paper

While I purchased a pack of rice paper months ago for gel printing, I have yet to try it out. I did have to look up which side to print on - the shiny side. Is that right? I would like to hear of your results using it for stamping as well as gel printing. As a background, I would assume double-sided tape is preferred for adhering it to cardstock because of its flimsiness; is that your choice too? For tearing is a wet brush line recommended? On the reverse side, or the shiny side? What about results with various color media: watercolor, alcohol ink, acrylic markers, spray ink, etc.?

There are several companies that sell rice paper sheets with designs on similar to pattern paper. I'm unsure if you can print on the rice paper with a printer. I'm guessing besides gel printing with acrylic paint, you can also use stamps and ink or watercolors, sprays, etc. I suggest cutting off a few small squares and experiment with different mediums and keep the successful ones as a reference. I use matte medium to apply rice paper to my projects. You could also use mod podge. I wouldn't use double side tape.

I should have figured out matte medium would work better. Got to get beyond timidity and plow into playing with it!
