Arches Natural White Watercolor Paper SheetsArches
Arches papers aren’t just for watercolors. Use them also for drawing, calligraphy, gouache, printmaking, acrylics, and even digital printing. Manufactured from pure cotton fiber, they are so durable that they will remain beautiful and vibrant for centuries without conservation, if stored and handled properly.
Many artists say they choose Arches because working on an inferior surface just isn’t worth the effort. And no other watercolor paper provides such a huge selection of sizes, surfaces, and formats for creative expression.
This paper is the original Arches, sometimes known as Natural White. The choice of leading watercolorists all over the world, Arches is the product of five centuries of papermaking experience. You can rely on Arches to always be consistent.
Arches watercolor papers are mould-made in France, with 100% cotton fiber content. They are acid-free, pH-neutral, gelatin-sized, and air-dried. Sheets have two natural deckle edges, two torn deckle edges, and are watermarked and embossed. The 16" × 20" sheets have four deckle edges.
Hot Pressed papers are plate smooth and are ideal for traditional watercolor techniques, as well as printmaking, pen and ink drawing and airbrushing.
The rich Cold Pressed surface is a particular favorite of illustrators, watercolorists and airbrush artists.
For a bolder more robust surface, Arches Rough provides just enough texture allowing for easy working and strong enough to maintain its character even after reworking. The Rough texture is also used by watercolorists, airbrush artists and acrylic painters.
