For years Ive searched the web for the age old question, "To Hishigami or not to Hishigami". Many results have turned up but few definitive answers to this basic question. Ive seen newspaper, card board, rice paper, silk, and even baked clay used for hishigami. Ive seen numerous ways of folding, bending, and twisting these materials to get the best results...However, I tend to see more catastrophic/ ugly examples of tsuka maki done "with" hishigami than without. What are your thoughts about this subject? What have you seen and done that works the best?
