This Paper's Features

  • Cold Press Texture - not as deep as the Rough but has more texture than Hot Press. Gives character to brush strokes, washes and line work in paint, ink and pencil. Excellent surface for Alkyds, Pen and Ink, Airbrush and Iris Digital Ink Jet Printing,
  • Internal and surface sizing with natural gelatin - unique process provides optimal color absorption yet prevents pigments from reaching the paper's core; prevents bleeding and muddying of colors and allows repeated layering of washes.
  • Natural White - no optical additives so it won't yellow over time
