1 review for Watercolour Paper Pads, Books & Journals – Potentate

  1. Lizette de Vries-Venter

    I tested the A4 sheets (cold press) and was a bit disappointed when it buckled with gouache. Once dry it relaxed until it was almost flat again. But using watercolour made it warp. I only painted wet on dry and will definitely recommend that you stretch it first before painting. It is listed as 300gsm, but it felt more like 200gsm paper.
    Both the watercolour and the gouache went on smoothly and the paper took multiple layers of paint without any problems.
    Overall I did like the loose sheets – they are good value for the price.
