Understanding the 3 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.

The Not stands for “Not Hot pressed”.

This multi-media pad is made with highly acclaimed Hahnemühle Britannia watercolour paper. The beautiful, natural white paper is acid-free, age-resistant and lightfast. It is 300gsm, and therefore quite firm with a luxurious feel of quality to it.  The stability and strength of the paper will ensure that it stays flat when wet. It is ideal for all wet painting techniques such as watercolour, especially wet-in-wet painting, smooth wash and also dry painting. An excellent paper for your watercolour medium, gouache, tempera and acrylics. It is available in sizes A2, A3, A4 and A5.
