Anyone want to answer the GSM paper question? Pretty please??
For the GSM...I like a 325 smooth or ultra smooth cold press or hot press watercolor paper..the rougher texture is great for charcoal and for graphite, the smooth. You really have to experiment with the papers to find what works best for you. It's the tooth rather than the weight of the paper that determines how that medium plays out on the surface. Anywhere between 300 and 350GSM I find is the best for me!
