Acquerello is a range of 100% cotton Italian mouldmade watercolor papers available in two weights and surface textures.
This range was created specifically with wet media application in mind, however it differs from its counterpart watercolor papers (it is not as hard and stiff to the touch).
The hot press (Portofino) has the same sizing characteristics as the CP surface but offers a surface that is appropriate for pen and ink, calligraphy, pencil and silkscreen.
It has also found its way into printmaking being suitable for both etching and intaglio. The paper is not heavily sized, therefore it does not require long soaking times.
This is a streamlined range of watercolor paper that provides the artist unlimited versatility for multiple mediums.
