Arches Water colour paper is made the traditional way, using a cylinder mould. This method ensures that the fibres are evenly distributed which makes the paper extremly stable, so it will not warp or stretch when water is applied to it.
Arches Water colour 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 paint penetrating into the paper, allowing light to shine through the pigment and reflect off the paper while ensuring durability of the colours.
This artist quality paper is further converted into artist blocks.
Blocks are pre stretched paper which is glued on all 4 sides.
Available in 300gsm, Cold Pressed, Hot Pressed and Rough.
Purchased blocks of Arches cold pressed watercolour paper. It is fabulous to use.
Delivered promptly too.
very happy with time of delivery, was packed very well and arrived at my rural address in perfect condition. i was desperate for it as i live in rural southern queensland and this was the only way of getting the only watercolour paper i prefer to use. i was very worried considering the large size of the block having to go through the post but now i couldn't be happier.
My sister is delighted. Now she has to learn how to use this fantastic paper …… and not keep for best. It arrived very promptly, thank you.
This is so far the best watercolour paper that I have ever used. I love this brand. Worth every bit of your penny. Very pleased with the store’s service too. It’s excellent!
Excellent watercolour paper
