HAHNEMUHLE TRADITIONAL FINE ART PAPERS
Hahnemuhle Fine Art Papers
Hahnemuhle is probably the oldest paper maker in the world and have been making high quality paper since 1584. The name is synonymous with quality when it comes to original mould-made and watercolour papers
Hahnemuhle Fine Art Watercolour Papers
Natural line papers have been the speciality of the Hahnemuhle paper mill for over 400 years. In watercolour painting the surface texture of the paper gives feel and individuality to the final piece of artwork. The surfaces are Rough and Matt, with the Matt being a smooth surface, similar to many 'not' surfaces on the market. Rough textures provide a granulation of the paints, and this heavy texture is often popular with landscape or nature watercolourists, giving an impression rather than precision. Matt is, as it says, and provides a slight texture suitable for most techniques and particularly more finely detailed work. The papers are either mould made or fourdrinier, in the traditions dating back to 1584. The range of watercolour products are available in blocks, pads or deckled edge sheets. Weights from 200 - 600gsm and acid free to the highest archival quality.
Hahnemuhle Fine Art Pastel Papers
Hahnemuhle pastel papers give variety to this medium whether the artist is using chalk or oil pastels. The mould made Ingres range of tinted laid textured papers, were named after French Artist Jean August Ingres (1780-1861), and is internally sized. Also in the pastel range is the Bugra mould made paper. It is unique and the name Bugra comes from the Bugra fair, held in Leipzig in the 1920's. Because of its coarse ribbed surface Bugra "Butten" is often used for antique prints, documents calendars, wood engravings and linocuts, book lining and special cover paper. It can also be used for drawing onto with carbon, red chalk and crayons. Pastel paper weights range from 100-260gsm, and are acid free to the highest archival quality.
