    Hi Iris, welcome along, I use 140lbs (300gms) Cold Pressed Not so mid weight mid texture. My go to paper is Hahnmule exhibition papers you go to their site you will find it. I would caution against expensive high end paper to start with as it throws up a few challenges. So just test out what you have and look for good colour hold and in strength, good even flow of paint when you apply it to wetted areas and medium speed of drying time. Hopethis helps
