Specially designed for use with water-soluble pencils!
The beautifully smooth natural wove Watercolour Paper has been especially developed for use with water-soluble pencils, but it can also team up with all types of water-soluble media; particularly our Artbar and Inktense Blocks ranges.
The superior smooth texture of the paper makes it incredibly versatile; it enhances your pencil work whether wet or dry, and is ideal for intricate watercolour paintings as well as even washes of colour, or a combination of the two!
The heavy weight 300gsm paper responds well to washes, although we do recommend that the paper is stretched prior to use if a particularly large area is to be covered or a heavy wash used.
The pads are available in the most popular sizes ranging from A3 to A5. Each pad contains 12 sheets of 300gsm, white, acid free watercolour paper.
Love these pads, used them with inktense pencils and conventional watercolour paints with very pleasing results. I also made some background pages for a photo album I am putting together using lots of washes, wax resist which involved a fairly hot iron and also some heat embossing using stamps and powders, I am very happy with the results.
