coloured paper and card
Available in A1 AND a4 IN BOTH PAPER AND CARD
An amazing surface sized watercolour paper that comes in hot pressed, not and rough finish. What impresses most, though, is the price. At nearly half the cost of Daler Rowney Langton, the Harmony range has taken over as a best seller, beating even the ever reliable Bockingford. Available in blocks in a wide variety of sizes, and in A4 and A3 in spiral format. This is not cheap paper...this is top quality paper that is astonishingly economical.
Launched at the same time as the Harmony, the Expression range is 100% cotton. It is surface sized for all wet painting techniques, and consequently, masking fluid can be used with confidence without fear of lifting or staining the paper. Once more, the price point is impressive, at roughly half the cost of an equivalent Saunders Waterford pad. Currently, it only comes in not finish, and in block format, but we are hoping that may change given it's popularity.
Watercolour Travel Books
A lovely hardbacked watercolour sketchbook that is perfect for painting on the go, be it at lunch break or on holiday. With 200gsm acid free paper and 30 sheets, this lovely book will tuck in your pocket, ready to capture your memories or latest inspiration.
We stock it in A5 and A6 landscape format.
Sketching & Drawing
Simple, smooth, bright white cartridge pads from Hahnemuhle. Acid free, and perfect for all dry media as well as ink and drawing pens. Available in two weights: 120gsm for lighter work, and 190gsm, where a heavier grade paper is required.
Stocked in pad format in A5, A4, A3 and A2.
The Grey Book & The Cappuccino Book
Available in A4 and A5 formats, these sketch books are perfect when you want to draw with a tinted background. Light grey and milky cappuccino respectively, they will take both pencil and pen with ease, even working well with acrylic markers. Although they have a smooth finish, I have found them suitable for pastel pencils and charcoal, with both lights and darks working well on the tinted surface.
Pink Pig Sketchbooks
A bestseller, and it's easy to see why.
Lovely, acid free paper, perfect for all dry media (and light watercolour according to a customer!) and available in a rainbow of beautiful silk and banana paper covers. As you may be able to see from the photo, they are emblazoned with our logo. We stock A2, A3, A4, A5, A6 and
8 x 8" and 6 x 6".
Zig-Zag books offer a unique sketching experience. Instead of loose pages, these are folded in a continuous concertina, allowing you to expand your drawing for the full length of the book should you choose. A brilliant concept, made even more fun by the mini sketchbook, which is only 5 x 5cm square!
