In this section of our website you can select from a broad range of available surfaces to work on, each one designed to deal with a specific type of media. Because of the vast difference in behavior of each media surfaces need different properties to accommodate these behaviors. Water colour paper needs to tolerate being saturated, and therefore needs to have high absorbency. Where as pastel pastel paper needs to have a texture so it can adhere to the surface, to allow layering of colour. There are many types and there are also choices for each type of media. If you still are not sure about which one to pick you can always give us a call for advice.
