Bockingford® is a beautiful English watercolour paper, traditionally made on a cylinder mould machine at St Cuthbert’s Mill. This is a high-quality paper made using pure materials to archival standards with a beautiful random surface texture that enhances the finished painting.

Its attractive surface is created using natural woollen felts that give it a distinctive random texture. Appreciated for its excellent colour lifting abilities, it is easy to lift the colour wash to get back to the white base paper. This is an extremely forgiving watercolour paper valued by professional and amateur artists around the world.

The paper is acid-free & archival, Calcium carbonate buffered with a pH of 7-9 and internally sized.

Understanding the 3 surfaces or textures of watercolour paper

Rough – A pronounced, varied texture, great for a textured loose feel.

Cold-pressed (NOT) – It’s the paper texture in-between rough and hot-pressed paper, having a slightly textured surface this paper is sometimes called NOT.

Hot-pressed (HP) – Watercolour paper with a very smooth surface and almost no tooth. Good for painting detailed paintings and creating very smooth washes.

The Not stands for “Not Hot pressed”
