As usual, the Hahnemühle booth at Creativeworld will be a hive of activity and artistic events. The fine art paper manufacturer will be exhibiting their artist papers from 28th to 31st January, at booth E10 in hall 4.1. There will be demonstrations from watercolour artist Audry Backs for those interested in learning new tricks and techniques. There will also be the release of new products including; ‘THE GREY BOOK’, ‘BRISTOL’ and ‘Britannia hot pressed’.
With ‘THE GREY BOOK’, Hahnemühle launches a high-quality sketchbook with a light grey paper and an eye catching anthracite coloured cover. As all the pages sit solidly, working on two pages, across the centre seam, is easily possible. Subjects can be laid out from bright to dark and completed by setting white accents. The smooth 120gsm paper is perfectly suited for work with Indian-Ink pens, fountain pens and acrylic markers.
Also brand-new and available from February, ‘BRISTOL’ is a bright white, non-absorbing paper with an ultra-smooth surface. This product has been designed for graphic designers and illustrators. The non-absorbing surface allows for crisp sketches and illustrations with any dry or fluid painting media.
The popular watercolour paper ‘Britannia’ will make its debut with a hot pressed surface. Due to the solid, smooth surface, colours stand out with vibrancy. While water-based colours easily can be removed again by re-wetting. In addition to watercolour painting, ‘Britannia hot pressed’ is ideal for use with gouache, tempera and acrylic. Visitors of Creativeworld can be amongst some of the first to experience the new hot pressed surface out. Artists are invited to visit the Hahnemühle booth to collect an introductory package which includes Britannia sheets in matt, rough and hot pressed surfaces.
Details on the new products are available in the press area of the Hahnemühle blog.
