BR30. Cotman Round WC Brush
Cotman Round Watercolor Brush.

Synthetic brush that is slightly stiffer than sable. Recommended by Lisa Engelbrecht; she especially likes the #8. The secret of the Cotman Bushes, from Winsor & Newton, lies in the fibers. By blending fibers of differing thickness, we achieve the three most important qualities sought by the artist. The thicker fibers contribute strength and spring, while the thinner fibers improve color carrying capacity (which have recently been improved by 50%). The two fibers together retain their point, time after time.

Specify size.

PS47. Arches WC HP 140LB 22x30
Arches Watercolor
Hot Press 140lb. 300gsm. 22"x30".

Superior quality, 100% rag, for pen and all techniques with opaque and transparent watercolor. Long used by calligraphers. HP (Hot press) finish is a very smooth sheet that will give a sharp smooth edge to your letters. Cold press watercolor paper can be used for calligraphy, but the letters won't be as crisp. You will see the cold press texture in your lettering. This has always been one of our most popular sheets.

Grain runs parallel to the underlined dimension.

This paper ships separately from books/supplies and requires an extra shipping fee which is NOT included in the price of this product. Add item 'PS00' to your cart after adding large sheets of paper. (click to read details)
