The watercolour paper made by Hahnemühle is a real vat paper, produced on a cylinder mould machine, which gives it the characteristic deckle edge. The use of various types of natural felt gives this paper a unique surface structure. Many artists are enchanted by our paper. The papers allow for optimum colour reproduction, have a resistant surface and withstand repeated erasures. These features make them suitable not only for watercolours, but also for other wet-painting techniques, such as gouache, tempera, opaque colours and lavis; as well as for drawing with charcoal, pencil and crayons.
