Arches watercolor papers are mouldmade in France, with 100% cotton fiber content. They are acid-free, pH-neutral, gelatin-sized, and air-dried. Sheets have two deckle edges, and are watermarked and embossed.
Cold Pressed or ‘Not’ Pressed: this medium rough texture is preferred by most. It takes colour smoothly, but the tooth allows for slight irregularities and graining in washes.
Arches papers aren’t just for watercolors. Use them also for drawing, calligraphy, gouache, printmaking, acrylics, and even digital printing. Manufactured from pure cotton fiber, they are so durable that they will remain beautiful and vibrant for centuries without conservation, if stored and handled properly.
Sheet size is 56 x 76 cm.
