These Canson Heritage Watercolour Pads contain 12 sheets of acid free Cold Pressed / NOT watercolour paper. 140lbs / 300gsm in weight and mould-made from 100% cotton, this is a top of the range watercolour paper for artists.
Canson Heritage Watercolour Paper is a new paper that has a unique ‘handmade’ texture that is ideal for washes and bringing out the vibrancy of the paint.
Cold Pressed Watercolour Paper is one of the most popular choices amongst Watercolour artists due its slight texture.
Heritage Watercolour Paper is surface sized and strong and absorbent. The high-quality sizing ensures uniform washes without the accumulation of pigments in one place. It remains wetter for longer giving the artist more working time before the paint dries and the paper surface can withhold a lot of re-working without getting damaged. This watercolour paper holds the paint very well so brushstrokes don’t bleed into the paper resulting in sharp edges and more accuracy.
These Canson Heritage pads are glued along the short side and is also available in hot pressed and rough surfaces, watercolour blocks and single sheets.
