The watercolour paper most prized by artists all over the world! It’s 100% long cotton fibre composition gives the paper its beauty, a natural, lasting whiteness and a distinctive touch as well as strength and longevity. Ideal for watercolour painting, as for all wet techniques such as ink, gouache and acrylic. Choosing the right paper is vital as it determines how the colours will be diffused, how fast they are absorbed and the final texture of the work.

The special formulation is a process exclusive to ARCHES®, the paper is sized to the core with natural gelatin. ARCHES® is the only paper mill in the world to gelatin size its watercolour paper “to the core”. Even if it is soaked for a long time, the paper will still retain enough gelatin not to become too absorbent.

 

Kindly note that although we do not stock all of the sheets, they are available on special order. Please confirm availability before placing an order!

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”

Conservation: Fungicidal treatment to prevent the appearance of mould. With alkaline reserve, acid-free, no optical brightening agents (permanent in accordance with ISO 9701).

Made on a cylinder mould (traditional process): quality close to that of paper made by craft methods. The slow turning of the cylinder enables the fibres to be deposited evenly and spread in all directions over the wire. The fibres are distributed evenly, the paper slackens uniformly when wet, giving the artist more control. This process can produce papers with a high grammage and exceptional resistance to scratching and erasing when they are gelatin sized to the core. Only papermaking on a cylinder mould can produce paper with deckle edges.
