A4+ 350gsm Water colour Paper.  Perfect for our watercolour tutorials on YouTube.

Water colour paper is different from other paper due to its material (or make-up).   Most standard paper uses recycled wood shavings alone or mixed with a small amount of cotton – to create it’s super fine and thin appearance.   However, watercolor paper – since it uses water – needs to be more absorbent than traditional paper.   This is why watercolor paper uses cotton intertwined in it’s fibers.  This is also the reason watercolor paper doesn’t warp or buckle under water as quickly as traditional paper – such as computer paper, drawing paper, and even Bristol paper (which is much thicker in appearance compared to other papers).

The texture of the water colour paper is what sets watercolor paper apart from others.  Texture (also known as the “tooth” of the paper) is key when painting with watercolor.  As one would guess – the more “tooth” or bumps to the paper – the more absorbent the paper will be.

”Try this small sample pack with the Water colour pocket book as a great starter kit.  The thickness and texture of the paper gives great results and there are enough sheets to text a wide range of technique and to plan one or two more final pieces” Kirsteen
