    Strange question...

    Counldn't find anything specific to Epson, but Kaolinite is commonly used for that according to my quick search.

    Wow, that stuff is used in a lot of things:

    Unless there are Nikon empployees on this forumI think you would be better suited calling Nikon directly.

    Where they get it, or even what they use would hardly be shared with everyone who decides to call up.

    I think the approach here may be somewhat wrong. Rather than try and find out what Epson is using on paper consider what you are trying to achieve. For instance is your art piece a rigid body? Then clear acrylic or a spray on 2 pak coat would make a nice glossy shine.

    Unless that is your art project is actually made from paper :)
