Cold press, hot press, rough, GSM, LB, 100% cotton, cellulose, natural fibers, surface sized — what do these words mean? The descriptions don’t really give you a feel for the way they’ll affect your painting.
Hahnemühle’s Watercolour Selection Pad is a sampler that includes 14 sheets of their high-quality watercolor papers. The sheets come in three surface textures (cold press, hot press, and rough), five weights, and three fibers (cotton, cellulose, and agave). Some of these are surface sized, and some are not. What a great way to explore Hahnemühle’s watercolor papers and the variety of watercolor papers in general.
