Because of its unique, matte surface, this naturally white artist’s paper made with bamboo fibre is highly suitable for many different painting and drawing techniques as well as for mixed media. This warm-toned and fine textured paper provides for high contrast and excellent colour intensity. Paints flow very nicely and maintain their luminosity when applied. It is especially good for use with watercolours, acrylic and pastel painting techniques but also for sketching and drawing with charcoal and pencil. Even very watery watercolours will not develop bleeding edges and the paper will remain sturdy.
Fast growing bamboo is used in the production of these papers to avoid the depletion of natural resources. Through Hahnemühle´s environmental initiative Green Rooster, a fixed amount of the sales money from the bamboo paper line is donated to environmental projects.
