Because the paper is coated on one side, the back side is neutral white, with some mottled red that bleeds through occasionally shown in (fig#4). We're not sure what the red coating is, but it's definitely not colorfast, and can rub off. Each sheet is different and not at all consistent.
These rosettes are approximately 5" across, and it's about 9" long including the tail ribbons.
The Nature of Paper - Please Read:
Over time, these pieces may fade, yellow, curl & tear. These pieces can be recycled, ceremonially burnt or can be stored & preserved as a family keepsake. As you know paper typically does not like FIRE, WATER or Direct Sunlight - so please be careful where you put them to live.
