Saunders Waterford Watercolour paper

  • Description
  • SIZE OPTIONS

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.

Available in White and High White, which we believe is the whitest archival watercolour paper made. Saunders Waterford® is a top quality professional watercolour paper.

Saunders Waterford is available in ROUGH, COLD PRESSED (NOT)  and HOT PRESSED (HP)
The rough is the roughest paper, NOT is a medium texture and HP is smooth.

Extra discount available when you buy more than one pack of 140lb, 200lb or 300lb!

Each pack contains 5 full imperial sheets of paper, which can be cut into 1/2 or 1/4 imperial at no extra charge.
Please note that if the paper is cut then there will no longer be deckled edges on all four sides.  When the paper is cut, in half, there will be 3 deckle edges and when the paper is cut, in quarter, there will be 2 deckle edges.

Review this item
  • Saunders Waterford 200lb Rough

    I use this paper almost exclusively. It is a wonderful surface and as stiff as cardboard so does not require stretching at 1/4 sheet size which frames up to a standard 20x16 frame. Douglas Elliot (Ormskirk, United Kingdom) on 25 Feb 2012

  • The Best Watercolour Paper for me

    I noticed that all great watercolourist such as Jozeph Zbukvic, David Curtis and Ross Paterson, uses Saunders Waterford. I have tried a wide range of varieties of paper, but this is my best experience ever! I am planning to order pack and packs from Ken Bromley for my own paper security!!!

    I advice other artists or fans to do so for one reason: this paper protects the brilliance and the watercolour paint luminosity, one of the main condition of a successeful watercolour. It is very "faithfull" surface to the tones. and I realy like it. I use Rough surface. the best for me.

  • My favourite watercolour paper

    This is my favourite watercolour paper as it accepts the paint well. I tend to use the 200lb or 300lb as there is no need to stretch it. I use it to demonstrate to my adult pupils. When they start to use it themselves they can't believe the difference in their painting. Jo Sinclair (U.K) on 26 Aug 2009
