This is a high quality paper made using pure materials to archival standards. Its attractive surface is created using natural woollen felts that give it a distinctive random texture. Appreciated for its excellent colour lifting abilities. This is an extremely forgiving watercolour paper valued by professional and amateur artists around the world.

User Reviews

Review this item
  • Great for all watercolour techniques

    Bockingford is a tough and forgiving paper, which is great for all watercolour techniques.

    Colours can be lifted if applied too dark without heavy staining problems, and the internal sizing means you do not always need to stretch the paper.

    Tip: wipe the surface with a clean sponge dampened in warm water, and begin painting once this has dried. It makes the paint go on more smoothly and stops the hard edges appearing. JG (Bristol) on 11 Oct 2006

  • Reliable! - Bockingford watercolour paper NOT 140lb (300gsm)

    I am still learning about watercolour, and always stick to this paper for consistency. Enough texture for techniques like dry brush, solid enough when stretched for big washes, and reasonably priced. One variable eliminated! Ray Grover (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 11 Aug 2012

  • Paper to best suit my students - Bockingford watercolour paper NOT 140lb (300gsm)

    This paper has been very popular with my students over the past 8 years, the price is right and the quality is consistent and is top of the range for paper in this class. Anthony Forster (Newcastle Under Lyme, United Kingdom) on 8 Apr 2012
