Canson Moulin Du Roy Watercolour Paper Pads contain 10 sheets of traditional cylinder mould made paper that is 100% cotton. This paper has ideal absorbency and superior strength.
This surface retains the look and feel of handmade paper. It is both internally and surface sized to aid the lifting of dried colour. It gives artists more opportunity to rework their watercolour paintings and the pigment also appears brighter.
Canson Moulin du Roy has a natural white colour, is acid free and is made without bleaching agents. This results in a paper with optimal conservation and archival qualities over time. It complies with ISO Standard 9706 and is treated with a mould resistant treatment.
Each pad contains 10 sheets of paper. Both NOT (Cold Pressed) or HP (Hot Pressed) surfaces are available in either an A4 or A3 format. Each pad is gummed along one of the shortest ends in a portrait format.
Canson 'Moulin Du Roy' paper is sized with AKD (Alkyl ketene dimer), an alternative to gelatine sizing that contains no animal-derived ingredients.
Canson Moulin Du Roy Watercolour Paper is also available in loose sheets.

I am not an expert in watercolours and so find this paper easy to use and very forgiving. It doesn't cockle easily, has a lovely texture and is great for illustration work. One definitive plus is that there is no animal products in it. Elisabeth Planella (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 24 Feb 2021
