These are stocked in three surfaces – Satine (HP), Cold Pressed (CP) and Rough (R). The tub-sized watercolour papers are 100% cotton with two deckled, and two cut edges. The papers are medium white in colour, halfway between Arches and Fabriano Extra White.
These brushes are known in France as ‘petit-gris’. They have long been famous for the ability to take up liquid and hold it for long continuous marks and lines without having to return to the watercolour pan to reload the brush. The hairs are hollow and take up liquid like a straw in the unique hair cross-section.
