Watercolour Sheets and Block Pads

Artists select fine watercolour papers by finish and by weight. Manufacturers generally sell three or more finishes, usually labeled Rough, Cold Press, and Hot Press. Hot Press Paper: (HP) Smooth Hot-pressed paper has a hard, smooth surface suitable for detailed, precise work. Most artists, however, find this surface too smooth and slippery, and the paint tends to run out of control Cold Pressed Paper: (NOT) Medium Grain This is a referred to as 'Not' meaning not hot-pressed. It has a semi-rough surface equally good for smooth washes and fine brush detail. This is the most popular and versatile of the three surfaces, and is ideal for less-experienced painters. It responds well to washes, has enough texture to give a lively finish. Rough Paper: This has more pronounced tooth (tiny peaks and hollows) to its surface. When a colour wash is laid on it, the brush drags over the surface and the paint settles in some of the hollows, leaving others untouched. This leaves a sparkle of white to illuminate the wash.
