Understanding the 3 surfaces or textures of watercolour paper  

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

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

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.

The Not stands for “Not Hot pressed”

ARCHES® is made the traditional way, on a cylinder mould and this gives the paper its harmonious natural grain. Thanks to this method, the fibres are evenly distributed and the paper slackens uniformly when wet.

Its composition with long fibres of 100% cotton gives the paper its strength, beauty, a natural, lasting whiteness and an inimitable touch.

ARCHES® is the only paper mill in the world to gelatin size its watercolour paper “to the core”. This preserves the lustre and transparency of the colours whilst preventing paints from penetrating the paper. It allows superposing of washes and gives it added strength to resist erasing and scratching without tearing or linting. It also allows paints to be removed, either wet or dry, easily revealing the whiteness of the paper. ARCHES® Watercolour paper can absorb a large amount of water with limited deformation.


Hot Press, Cold Press or Rough – decisions… decisions.
