Arches watercolour paper is a 100% cotton paper and is considered to be one of the highest quality watercolour papers available today. Arches Paper is a professional grade watercolour paper of the highest quality. Manufactured in the same French mill since 1492, Arches watercolour papers are produced on a cylinder mould with pure French stream water. Made with natural gelatin sizing; naturally white containing no optical brighteners offering optimal longevity.
Each sheet of paper is hand inspected for quality before leaving the factory to ensure consistency and durability. Arches is strong enough to handle multiple washes of colour, masking fluid, scrubbing and artist tape without damage to the surface. Each sheet is permeated with sizing to give each fiber a consistent feel and absorbency. It is an ideal paper for watercolour and other wet media, and can also be used for drawing and printmaking. Acid-free.
