Cold Press - This lightly textured paper surface is the most popular finish for watercolor paintings. It reflects light well, retaining the transparent quality of watercolors. The light tooth makes it easier to achieve certain details, while the slightly rougher texture shows off granulating colors beautifully. Not limited to watercolors, it's also recommended for gouache, acrylic, airbrush, graphite, pastels, and charcoal. A versatile paper texture.
Hot Press - Hot Press paper is the smoothest of watercolor papers, making it ideal for detailed artwork because the surface allows for the most delicate of details. For this reason, it's a favorite with illustrators and botanical artists. It also digitally scans well due to this lack of texture. Hot Press is also recommended for gouache, acrylic, colored pencil, pen and ink, and technical pens.
White Sample Pack - This Stonehenge Aqua Sample Pack includes 3 sheets each of white 140 lb. Cold Press, 140 lb. Hot Press, and 300 lb. Cold Press watercolor paper. Each sheet measures 11" x 15", or a quarter sheet.
Aqua Black - Stonehenge Aqua Black Watercolor Paper is a 100% cotton black watercolor paper that opens up an exciting new world! Instead of building up shadows, one builds up light. It’s a place where negative space is transformed into positive. Ideal for metallic and pearlescent watercolor paints, pencils, pens, markers, and inks.
