Jacksons Two Rivers Handmade Watercolour Paper : NOT surface : 200lb : 16x20in : 10 sheets

Made exclusively for Jackson s by the Two Rivers paper mill in Somerset.
This paper is conservation quality, made with 100% cotton and linen rag and very hard sized. This means that the surface is incredibly tough, allowing the artist to work the surface for much longer than with more absorbent artists papers. Because the paint is not drawn into the paper the pigment dries to a sharp and brilliant finish. The inclusion of linen in its make-up results in an unusually tough surface which will resist much lifting out, scrubbing and re-working.
Reassuringly, the 400 year old mill is also hydro powered making it very environmentally friendly.
TR has a unique random surface texture unlike the mechanically even weave of most other branded papers. This also means that there is not a right or wrong side as both sides are identical. As well as watercolour, our papers are used for other media including pastels, oils, printmaking, photographic processes and many types of mixed media.
The NOT surface is slightly rougher than most.

Review by Malcolm Colton
I have used just about all the mould-made, hand-made and machine-made waterclour papers in my 50 years of watercolour painting. Still lamenting the closure of the hand-made paper at Wookey Hole three years ago, I started using the only hand-made paper still produced in this country by Two Rivers. I can only say, that I have been using this paper exclusively since, and would recommend it unreservedly to anyone. Many watercolour papers give excellent results, but I found Two Rivers paper gives a consistant finish, luminosity of colour and ease of working, whatever the subject. It also takes a huge amount of image correction by brush or rubber, without damaging the surface.Working on this paper is a treat. Mac Colton (Posted on 20/08/2015)
