Beautiful paper - I use quarter imperial size, NOT - a perfect support for my watercolours. No buckling or cockling. Surface takes much erasing of pencil lines without degredation. Whiter than Saunders Waterford. Tom Cunliffe (East Sussex) on 4 Sep 2011
I really like this paper - good for positive mark making, holds colour well - also did well with wet on wet work. It does not like masking liquid but this was not very important for me. Heavy and useable without stretching.I generally like Hahnemuhle watercolour papers anyway. Jayanthi Rani (Maidstone, United Kingdom) on 26 Jun 2013
Fantastic paper - good for lifting. I recommend it to all my advanced students and art societies I demo for. Kate (Cumbria) on 18 Feb 2007
