Watercolor Paper

I am the “queen of all watercolor papers.” Watercolor, airbrush and gouache artists and connoisseurs of manga will love me! I am the perfect foundation for all kinds of watercolor subjects and techniques, because I am both absorbent and moisture resistant. You can use all kinds of watercolor techniques (such as glazing, washing and granulation) and my surface texture will remain intact and my paper fibers will not come loose.


My rough felt-marked surface resembles cold pressed watercolor board (300 g/m²). The advantage is that the paper is very robust and absorbent, is resistant to curling and the colors do not dry out too quickly. Even mistakes in individual sections can be repaired and the colors can be easily applied again.

It enhances the color effect, especially in wet-on-wet techniques (washes), and in dry techniques (granulation), it increases the formation of white highlights due to the graininess of the surface of the paper. It is also nice to see how glazes are evenly distributed and that the colors flow exactly as professionals would expect from a perfect watercolor paper.

Not all watercolor papers are alike. Watercolor papers come in different qualities and price ranges, from handmade paper to rag paper, high-quality cellulose paper and felt marked cellulose paper. The bonding of the paper must be done in such a way that the paper surface structure is not affected when moistened with paint, the sheet does not curl and the paint is absorbed evenly. The secret is to work with the surface texture of the watercolor paper:
