Tips On Treating Ultra-thin Paper?

Postby Baltorigamist » May 13th, 2016, 8:44 pm

I just bought a few sheets of gampi silk paper from Amazon, but the first sheet tore as soon as I tried to flatten it on the wet acrylic (to treat it). It's ridiculously thin--probably no more than 15gsm--but too soft to be folded as-is.
Does anyone have any tips on how to be more careful with it (and on other papers) so I don't waste the rest of the $25 order?
After the fall...we rise.
