  5. illustration board
    watercolor paper mounted on a pressboard backing
  6. hot-press finish
    a slick, smooth texture achieved by pressing paper between hot rollers; this treatment leaves a thin layer of oil, which makes the paper unsuitable for use with transparent watercolor; works well with designer's grouache, acrylic, pencils, and markers
  7. cold-press finish

  8. rough finish

  13. graphite
    a soft carbon similar to the lead in a pencil; sticks can be purchased in most art supply stores
