I really like my Ohuhu watercolor markers, so I thought I'd give their paper a try. The price is very good - at the time I bought mine, it was $16.59 for 72 sheets, which is less than a quarter per sheet, nice since it's 140lb sized cold press watercolor paper.
The two pads arrived in a manufacturer box, which I appreciated since Amazon sometimes sends my paper in a padded envelope, so sometimes the corners are damaged. The corners on these were fine, thanks to the box, and each pad was wrapped in clear plastic.
I put the paper through its paces, swatching and doodling the same paints and colors on both this paper and one of my regular papers. The colors on the Ohuhu paper stayed vibrant, it did well wet-on-wet, the colors moved well, and the non-staining colors lifted pretty well when wet. The color intensity, brightness and saturation were identical to my comparison paper, which is a very good thing. I'm not rough with watercolor paper, but some paper does pill a bit - the Ohuhu paper didn't.
I dislike watercolor blocks, which this paper is, and I'd have preferred pads, but these were as good as any block and came with a thin plastic knife. After looking, I found the open spot and sliced off the paper I had just used with no damage. I prefer taping my paper on the edges, but this paper is good for those who prefer blocks.
Btw, I messaged Ohuhu and asked if the paper was vegan, and they told me it is. So two more pluses - one for good customer service, one for cruelty-free paper.
I'm quite happy with this paper. It's the weight I use, it's pretty white, doesn't immediately suck up all the water when you're painting wet-on-wet, and behaved like good watercolor paper. My paints - I tried 4 brands - looked very good on it. And at 23 cents per sheet, this is about half what I usually pay for everyday paper, a quarter or less of what I pay for good cotton paper at the same size. I hope Ohuhu keeps making this paper, because I'll definitely be buying it again!
