Presentation

The sheets of roller-marked paper feature four deckle edges which guarantees their traditional manufacturing. 



Grain

Hot pressed paper offers a smooth texture that is particularly suited to creating detailed and precise work, such as portraits. It demands a good mastery of watercolour.



Weight

640 gsm paper is particularly stable; it does not warp. It is useful for watercolours that require a lot of water. Heavier and thicker, the paper retains more moisture, allowing paint to dry more slowly. One should be comfortable with wet techniques before using this paper.
