"Hot-Pressed" can also be abbreviated to "HP"
Keep this in mind when looking for watercolour paper.
Completely smooth, making this the least textured watercolour paper available.
Generally favoured by artists that like to work delicately, with a lot of subtle detail (for example; when producing botanical work) or people looking to reproduce their work on a smoother surface.
Although these can be mistaken for handmade papers, in fact they simulate this using a mechanised process.
The mould is replaced by a slowly rotating cylinder mould, which picks up the paper stock from the vat.
The paper is then deposited onto a continuously moving woollen felt.
This combines the consistent quality of machine made (fourdrinier) papers, whilst maintaining the individual character of more traditionally handmade papers.
They are of particular interest to artists due to their superior surface stability, beautiful surface texture & resistance to tearing.
