Hot press or cold press? 300 gm? Cotton? So many weights, types, brands …. There’s loads to learn about paper!
Did you know that the wrong paper can make your watercolors dull, can make your waterproof ink not waterproof, can affect your pencil smudginess, your pen’s performance, and so much more?
Selecting paper and sketchbooks can be overwhelming. We have loads of questions too — so we gathered up the smartest paper experts we could find to give us some answers in an event called Q&Art Live: Paper.
We discussed how paper is made and why it matters, common problems, how to select the right materials, and much more. Above you’ll find a recording of the entire Q&Art Live! Paper, sponsored by Winsor & Newton.
Below are some of the major questions and answers from the event, edited by our friend, David Pyle.
