Watercolor Wednesday with Schut-07 #Exaclair #Schut #Watercolor

Each Wednesday for 22 weeks, I’ll be sharing artwork that was done on paper from a Schut Papier sampler.  I’ll be giving you a little information about each of the papers.

Schut Serene Watercolor Paper, Medium Fine Grain/Cold-Pressed, 200 gm2/95 lbs

Acid-free, Cellulose.

The outcome of my tests:

  • Washes move well.
  • Pencil marks wash into paint without smearing.
  • Paint only lifts so-so.  It is easy to cause damage that will show if area is painted over.
  • Both masking tape and liquid frisket remove easily.
  • I didn’t have problem with backruns..
  • Scraping works without excess fuzz or pills.
  • You can gently fold the paper over until the edges meet.  The paper ‘remembers’ the fold, but will straighten completely if weighted down.
  • You can fold the paper, without creasing, until edges touch and it springs back without memory.  It creases cleanly without radiating or cracking.
  • There was no dimpling, buckling or curling.
