Lanaquarelle cold press is a beautiful paper for watercolor and gouache. It does not hold up to drafting tape as a masking method, but can take masking fluids. The paint continues to slowly and evenly disperse across a wet surface, applied even after the wet sheen subsides, so be careful not to over-paint during wet on wet or dispersion will go too far. It is a great paper for very surprising subtle and delicate effects, as well as bold and saturated washes, which apply easily and evenly. I am glad I tried this paper and I would definitely use it again and again.
