Understanding the 4 surfaces or textures of watercolour paper:

Rough – A pronounced, varied texture, great for a textured loose feel.

Cold Pressed (NOT) – It’s the paper texture in-between rough and hot-pressed paper, having a slightly textured surface this paper is sometimes called NOT.

Hot Pressed (HP) – Watercolour paper with a very smooth surface and almost no tooth. Good for painting detailed paintings and creating very smooth washes.

Soft Press – The new Soft Press watercolour paper texture sets a new standard for the Fabriano Artistico range. It was developed after feedback from artists that there was a need for a smoother texture than Cold Press, but with the same working properties as the Cold Press and Rough textures. The Soft Press texture sits between the smoothness of Hot Press and the roughness of Cold Press and only has a very slight tooth.
