| p.1 #7 · Another paper question... with a slight twist |
Howard, I'm glad you spoke up... I agree that it is wiser to pick one pack that covers most bases and then go from there. The RR pack is good one, but I do wish it had a baryta paper.... I think I might get the Canson sampler too, even though it is alot more expensive.
Red River do have a baryta paper, but I don't know whether it is too recent to be in the sample pack. However, if you were to start in one place, then the Canson pack offers a greater variety of paper types than the Red River pack.
The Red River baryta is their only 300 g/m˛ paper, all the others are light to medium weight, and they offer no textured fine art papers; no light, medium, or watercolor textured papers. And nothing like the photo black ink Museo Silver Rag, Canson Platine Rag, or Epson Exhibition.
I would agree that working with fewer papers would be a good way to start out, but the Red River sample pack just doesn’t cover enough.
