Handmade semi-rough paper


There are three types of commercially made paper: smooth or hot-pressed (HP); semi-rough or cold-pressed (NOT); and rough. Choose a texture that suits the medium you use; strokes of watercolour emphasize the grain of roughly textured handmade paper, while pen and ink requires a smoother surface to ensure the ink flows smoothly. Try to buy acid-free paper so that it will not darken with age.
