Made in the traditional way, on a cylinder mould, ARCHES Watercolour paper has a harmonious natural grain. The fibres are evenly distributed, making the paper more stable, with very limited deformation.
Made of long 100% cotton fibres, ARCHES Watercolour paper can absorb a lot of water without warping or causing the colours to bleed. It is sized to the core with natural gelatin, which means it can be scratched without tearing or linting, a process exclusive to ARCHES. It also preserves the lustre and transparency of the colours whilst preventing paints penetrating into the thickness of the paper. Arches Blocks have a protective black top sheet and are glued on all four sides with black adhesive.
10 sheets per block, glued 4 sides and available in 300lb (640gsm) in a NOT surface.
140lb ARCHES blocks are also available here.
These watercolour blocks are excellent, no mater what size you choose. Just make sure the surface is dry if using masking fluid, as you would do with ordinary paper.
The added benefit, is that you are buying from Ken Bromley. In all the years I have been dealing with him, He has never once let me down. Steve (Artist Devon) on 3 Jan 2017
Like the extra weight if using lots of water Wendy Simm (Kirkbymoorside, United Kingdom) on 25 Jan 2018
