Saunders Waterford is an exquisite watercolour paper, traditionally made on a cylinder mould machine. This is the superior quality watercolour paper made by St Cuthberts Mill and comes with the Royal Watercolour Society’s endorsement. Made using 100% cotton, the highest quality papermaking material, to high archival standards. Each sheet is buffered with calcium carbonate to help defend finished pieces of work from discolouration caused by acids present in atmospheric pollution.
Its attractive surface is created using natural woollen felts that give it a distinctive random texture. The surface is sized in gelatine making it strong and resilient to scrubbing, and other rough treatments.
20 sheets of acid-free Saunders Waterford 140lb (300gsm) 100% rag watercolour paper gummed on all four sides. Ideal for the professional or amateur alike.
NOW AVAILABLE IN 3 NEW SIZES!!
Tried this out after using the Bockingford and feeling slightly disappointed. This all-cotton paper is an absolute treat and the smaller size makes it so convinient to throw in a bag and paint on the go, while still having a canvas large enough to add in bits of detail here and there with a small brush. Acts just like my W&N, although it dries a little faster (not a bad thing imo) FLS (Pudsey, United Kingdom) on 3 Oct 2018
Great to have this lovely paper in a block to take on holiday and not have to worry about stretching. Pamela Hibbert (Crowthorne, United Kingdom) on 21 Jun 2012
