Watercolor Paper Comparison.

Today I decided that I would compare two different watercolor papers. One that is hot press and one that is cold press. The cold press has more texture to it.
I started out by embossing a background stamp onto both papers and heat embossing them. The cold press, with more texture was harder to get a good stamp, and therefore did not emboss fully. But despite that, it still was complete enough to look good. Then I watercolored both with Windsor and Newton watercolors. Both look good, but I think I like the hot press paper without as much texture better.

Really liked the way this stamp looks embossed with the watercolors over the top.

Thanks for joining me.
