Manufactured in the same French mill since 1492, Arches watercolor papers are produced on a cylinder mould with pure French stream water. They are 100% Cotton, and made with natural gelatin sizing. Each sheet of Arches watercolor paper is hand inspected to ensure consistency and durability.
Arches is strong enough to handle multiple washes of color, 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 watercolor and other wet media, and can also be used for drawing and printmaking. Available in sizes 9x12 and 10x14.
