Olive is a color that I don't particular use in any of my color palettes. While the scan on my computer shows it a little hotter (more lime-ish) than it really is, this paper is a thick paper from India that uses the colors olive, white and gold. The beauty of this paper is the fact that it does truly shimmer with the gold highlights. The downside of this paper (as with many of the Indian papers that I have) is that it curls like crazy. More importantly, it stretches in both directions. Primarily, I now us it for for paper covers for soft-covered pamphlet books.
