Watercolor Papers vary by finish and by weight. The finishes of watercolor papers are typically labeled Rough, Cold Press, Soft Press and Hot Press. Most artists prefer a Rough or Cold Press finish for transparent watercolor applications. Where as, a smoother finish, such as Hot Press, is more desirable for printmaking and drawing applications. The most common weights for watercolor papers are 140 lb. and 300 lb. 140 lb. Watercolor Papers typically require stretching before you paint, otherwise warping or buckling will occur during the drying process. However, 300 lb. Watercolor Papers are heavy enough to resist warping or buckling of the cotton fiber and do not require stretching prior to painting.
