If you're having trouble with the hotpress block i suggest..
Comments about Lanaquarelle Watercolor Blocks:
I hope as not impressed with this paper especially in block form. I highly recommend Saunders Waterford hot press block that is brilliantly stronger than the rest of the watercolor blocksbive used including arches. And the price is comparable if not less. I've recently switched over from Fabriano and arches to Saunders this last year and can't believe I painted anything decent with out it!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I use it for pastel. Difficult, and requires boldness of application, but terrific results.Thanks, Blick, for continuing to carry this hard to find paper.

Very very nice paper. Colors are rich and the texture allows for great fluid movement.

Best prices, fast shipping
from Birmingham, AL
I only buy my watercolor paper from Dick Blick. They have the best prices and it arrives fast! Not to mention that I love having the large flat box for hauling around the paper afterwards.

Lanaquarelle makes it possible to create soft watery blends as well as hard edges. A good solid watercolor paper that makes it possible to do professional work. Holds up well to repeated washes with the block paper and keeps colors true. Comes in a nice variety of sizes as well.

"New improved quality" is terrible.
By No more Lana Jamma
from Oakland, CA
I've been using Lanaquaelle for years. They used to have the best Hot Press 300gsm /140lb on the market. It had a beautiful eggshell finish that stood out compared to the competitors gridded machined finish (Arches, etc). I got to know it very well. Every once in a while I'd get a bad cut, but not very often.This new paper that is available is labeled as "New improved quality". While the older paper did have a bit of room for improvement. This new paper is bad on every mark:1. Every sheet I have from the new batch (20) is cut at a diagnal, not nearly square.2. The finish is gone. Now it has the machined grid finish just like most the other makers.3. They actually watermarked and sized the wrong/ back side!4. The weight has dropped below 90lb. I compared it to 90lb Stonehenge illustration paper. It's lighter. This was supposed to be 140lb.It's sad and I don't know of any alternatives that I like as much as the old Lana. I think I'll try sizing the Stonehenge paper myself and hope I can turn it into a good watercolor paper, since it's already a mighty fine illustration paper.

I've used Lanaquarelle for over seven years now. I like how the paper accepts color. I can get great effects with it. Also though, if I decide to have prints made from a painting, the paper comes out pure white and not buff, which I like.
