Having just started with watercolour it is difficult to know what paper works best. I started with an ordinary stationary shop brand paper as I was not aware of what else there was out there. The choice of paper is a real challenge to the beginner and so to be able to get a sample pack of top brand papers to try saves on the expense of buying full sheets or pads and getting stuck with paper that doesn't suit. Thank you for labelling all the papers in pencil to make identification easy. Lorraine Heyworth (Chester, United Kingdom) on 13 Sep 2013
An excellent range of papers for trying out. Contains HP which I used for pen and wash, Not and Rough for watercolours. Loved the Bockingford Cream, which I would not have thought of in the normal run of things. Surprised how different the various manufacturer's papers perform, so well worth the small cost of this pack. Keith Hammant (Malvern, United Kingdom) on 31 Jul 2015
