Today we’re releasing five brand new sets of extraordinary papers to accompany your creative time with Rebelle. They are based on the real-world papers used by traditional artists. The new paper sets include classic cold pressed papers, but also exotic papers like mulberry, coconut or papers made from straw. We did our little magic to turn them into a digital form to make them behave incredibly realistically.
Handmade Spread – Recycled Papers
The papers in this set were created by manually spreading of recycled paper mass onto sieves or linen. The unrepeatability of the production process ensures that each paper is original with unique visual characteristics. These ultra-realistic digital papers are suitable for watercolors, acrylics, ink or pastel drawing. The unique textures in this original paper collection will make your artwork stand out!
Mulberry, Coconut & Straw – Experimental Papers
This exotic assortment includes paper from coarse coconut fiber, mulberry paper and a combination of fine mulberry fibers and pressed straw. The wild edges of these materials will complete your work beautifully. The papers are suitable for courageous experimenters with watercolor, ink and any dry technique. If you like the frottage technique, this set is for you!
Cold Pressed Pure Cotton – 100% Cotton Papers
Pure cotton paper is one of the finest materials used in the world of watercolor painting. This set offers three cold-pressed papers with the beautifully distributed grain. The edges that seem to bubble over a paper form imitate a tear-off from a watercolor sketchbook. Papers are excellent for any wet technique. Just grab the brush and make your first stroke!
Exotic Crumpled – Wrinkled Paper Texture
This set is based on the old tradition of refining paper by its scrunching. The papers were created by the additional crumpling of paper made from exotic Lokta bush, noble mulberry, and fine cotton. Surfaces are a unique combination of material characteristics, creasing, and layering. These watercolor painting papers allow you to create works of unusual appearance in a variety of wet and dry techniques.
Cold Pressed Mix – Watercolor Papers
There are never enough high-quality cold-pressed papers! This set includes a paper with a fine, horizontally structured surface on which every detail will stand out, a paper with a regular texture and a typical watercolor paper with a medium rough random grain. If you want to study different watercolor techniques, pencil and ink drawing, you need to give this set a try.
How We Create Papers for Rebelle
The ultra-realistic papers are an absolute gem. When creating papers, we look for a suitable contrast in texture to capture the characteristics of the fibers, which creates a unique paper structure every time. Papers are not a simple copy of reality. They are new textured images created with respect to the original pattern and behave realistically like real papers while painting in the Rebelle.
The new, as well as the rest of the paper sets, are available from our website for $9.99 USD each. Every set contains three different papers.
We wish you many creative moments with the new papers :-) Your Escape Motions Team
