Arches Watercolour Pad 185gsm
Arches Watercolour Pads are made with 100 % long cotton fibres giving the paper its beauty, a natural, lasting whiteness and an inimitable touch as well as strength.
Made on a cylinder mould, quality close to that of paper made by craft methods. The slow turning of the cylinder enables the fibres to be deposited evenly and spread in all directions over the wire. The fibres are distributed evenly, the paper slackens uniformly when wet, giving the artist more control. This process can produce papers with a high grammage and exceptional resistance to scratching and erasing, when they are gelatin sized to the core. Only papermaking on a cylinder mould can produce paper with deckle edges.
Ideal for watercolour painting, as for all wet techniques such as ink, gouache and acrylic. Find it in A5, A4 & A3 sizes in pads, and also in large sheets. Comes in three different textures Hot Press (smooth), Cold Press (Medium texture) and Rough. Choose from 185gsm or 300gsm.
