This is my favorite watercolor paper for stamping and coloring. I have been using watercolor paints, water based markers and water color markers and crayons. I have been layering color to achieve deeper richer colors and the paper has held up to reworking. The water is absorbed into the paper, not just laying on top, and the color migrates into the wet areas nicely.
I like the hot press for stamping as it is much smoother than the cold press. This allows for clear stamped images. Oh, it is important to use archival ink with the stamps because water based will just smear and migrate with the watercolor paints.
My favorite ink to use with this is the Rangers archival, it is holding nice. I do use clear stamps and the stazon ink and stazon stamp cleaner can damage the clear stamps, so Rangers archival it is. Using powder embossing actually works with this paper also, you are able to get that smooth a stamp with it!
I like this product very much. For cardmaking/stamping, I especially like the smoothness of it. When I stamp on coldpress watercolor paper the images are often somewhat incomplete and lines somewhat jagged. With this paper the lines are sharper and the images more distinct. The weight is substantial but not as thick as the cold press paper I've been using. This hotpress paper is just right for layering. I'll buy it again!
I hate cutting my own paper for small paintings! I found this terrific paper, precut, and ready to go with 25 sheets total. The price isn't bad either. The paint applied wonderfully to the surface and it can take a good amount of wetness from the water and paint with out pilling or bowing. When I run out, plan on buying more.
