Check Out This Excerpt From Watercolorist’s Answer Book:
There are three main surface finishes for watercolor papers: hot press, cold-press and rough. A standard-sized sheet is 22” x 30” (56cm x 76cm).
Hot-Press A smooth finish is called hot-press. The newly made sheets are pressed between calendar rollers to smooth the surface. Hot-press paper had a glossy, hard, even finish that’s idea for detail work. It gives a characteristically mottled look to watercolors.
Cold-Press Cold-press paper (also called not or not hot) has a moderate surface texture, referred to as tooth. The tooth results when cotton pulp passes through the cylinders of a papermaking mould next to a sheet of felt. The impression left by the felt creates the surface texture of that sheet. Cold-press papers have a visible yet unobtrusive finish that is good for broad, even washes as well as detail work.
Rough The dramatic "pebble" appearance of rough-surfaced paper make a loud statement. As you brush a wash across this surface, the pigment will drain off the hills and settle into the valleys of this finish, creating a slightly impressionistic effect. Use this paper when you want a dramatic surface pattern to create an impact in your painting.
