Britannia, is one of Hahnemühle’s most popular watercolour papers. In time for Creativeworld, the classic is being launched with an additional finish: Hot pressed.
The solid, smooth surface is perfectly suited to sketching and erasing. Also ideal for wet colour application, the heavy paper allows easy correction of mistakes and colours stand out vibrantly against each other. In addition, the hot pressed Britannia can be used for gouache, tempera and acrylic methods. “Hot pressed Britannia is a great addition to our watercolour family and it ideal for artists who prefer working with a smooth, non-structured surface for their art work. It also works well for artists who use dry painting techniques,” suggests Rana Ardal, Product Manager for Traditional FineArt products at Hahnemühle.
Britannia hot pressed is available in both block and sheet formats. Visitors of Creativeworld can be amongst some of the first to try the new hot pressed surface out. They are invited to visit the Hahnemühle booth E10, hall 4.1 to collect an introductory package that includes Britannia sheets in all three surfaces.
Hahnemühle produces paper since 1584 and is the oldest German paper mill for artist papers. Besides traditional artist papers digital FineArt papers for inkjet prints are part of the portfolio today. The development and manufacture of technical specialty papers for industrial and research is another priority. Headquartered in Dassel and with offices in the UK, France, USA and China, Hahnemühle employs around 180 people.
