100% Handmade Cotton-Rag, 250 gsm
This 100% handmade Cotton-Rag paper made by Northern Indian artisans is sold as individual sheets and each pack is unique in tone and grain adding to the beautiful finish of the popular handmade paper. The overall texture of the paper is mid-rough and at 250gsm weight it is suitable for watercolour, and all painting purposes as well as all dry and soft media. Note that for oil painting, the surface needs to be prepared with gesso. Each sheet is individually handmade with a deckled edge on each side.
100% acid-free with a neutral pH and internally gelatine sized (not vegan - the manufacturer is currently looking for a vegan-friendly option).
The Conscious Artist finds that the Natural Earth natural paint used as a watercolour breaks the surface of this paper if plenty of water is added. Other watercolours seem suitable, also ones that have been upcycled from make-up products.
