26th November 2020 Reviewed by Susan Atkinson this is my favourite paper.
Strong enough to take wet washes without buckling, doesn’t rip when masking fluid is removed.
The slight texture enhances my paintings even though they are very detailed.
Quality at an affordable price. With the added bonus of being made in England.

28th June 2019 Reviewed by Catherine Smith Bought to carry to my art club for use with watercolour and gouache. When I had really wetted the paper on one occasion (lifting off) the paper did lift a little, but rapidly settled on drying. On removal from the block, the painting was perfectly flat. Ideal for carrying or travel.
