If anyone is interested in using real parchment (not paper) here is a place. I'd love to try it using a real quill.....one of these days. Wonder what buckskin would be like.

rgamena, Jesse Meyers' parchment/vellum manufactureing compay is about 130 m. South of Howes Cave in Montgomery NY.

"Pergamena offers calfskin, goatskin, and deerskin parchment. Parchment is sold by the whole skin, and is available in three thicknesses... Dyed goatskin, and deerskin ... is $3 extra per square foot.
Buckskin is available as a special order, as are custom colors and preparations; please call or write for details and prices."

Thanks for the resource.
I painted this with acrylic on tooling leather (from Tandy) and really liked it and plan to do more.
