3-D Printed Mould
For several years Magnolia Editions has produced watermarks using a 3-D FLA polymer printer. More recently, Canadian papermaker Brian Queen generously provided Magnolia with his hard-fought 3-D object files of a paper mould, deckle and laid screen. With minor modifications, master printer Nicholas Price has made them compatible with the Type A 3-D printer, and Magnolia is now 3-D printing small but very usable plastic paper moulds.
Update: Now using a Fusion 3 FLA printer and making 8.5 x 11 inch moulds, screens and deckles. Surprisingly. the plastic moulds really perform well and make perfect paper.
