Watercolor Paper Review

FashionSketch

Hello guys! I often get asked questions about art supplies, what type of watercolor I use and what’s the best type of paper, so I’m hoping you’ll find this review helpful. I recently had the pleasure to try DalerRowney products for the very first time. They sent me their Langton Prestige 100% cotton watercolor paper and this is the illustration I painted on it.

So here is what I think of this paper…

The first thing I noticed as I was painting is that watercolor didn’t dry fast on this paper which is great for me because this left me enough time to blend the colors and create beautiful effects. However, the second thing I noticed is that the paper tends to buckle when wet (note that I was painting on Hot Pressed paper), so perhaps purchasing the 4 sides glued pads might avoid this problem. Overall I really liked the way watercolor performed on Langton paper especially how the smooth surface made the colors look so brilliant. I think this is actually the best quality of this product, because of all the papers I’ve tried so far this is the one that made colors look more vibrant.
