Arches Watercolour paper is made the traditional way, using a cylinder mould. This method ensures that the fibres are evenly distributed which makes the paper extremely stable, so it will not warp or stretch when water is applied to it.
Arches Watercolour paper is made from long, 100% cotton fibres allowing it to absorb a lot of water without warping or causing the colours to bleed.
It is sized to the core with natural gelatine, so it can be scratched without tearing or linting.
This internal sizing also prevents the paint from penetrating into the paper, allowing light to shine through the pigment and reflect off the paper while ensuring the durability of the colours.
This artist quality paper is further converted into convenient A size pads.
I purchased an A3 block for use in a travel journal and some tubes of watercolour. Great price. Great service. Package arrived promptly in good condition. Thank you very much!
Arches paper is the go to for most water colourists worldwide. You pay more but the results are so worth it.
Excellent price , best I’ve found, prompt delivery… I’m very happy
The products available from ASA would meet any artists wants and needs - beginner to professional. It's worth paying a little extra for postage - my supplies arrive at my remote NT hometown in 3 working days!
I have been painting a few years now and Arches was recommended as top quality paper. I have tried others but Arches is the only paper for me. Use it with quality paints and you can't go wrong
