Description

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. Quality/Recommended: Recommended for professional artists.

30th August 2021 Reviewed by Anita Soi I use this for water colour.

I recommend for everyone. I am currently a beginner at water colour and I find that the paper is textured enough that it gives a nice finish but it's still easy to work with.

The quality is very good. This is the best paper that I have used for watercolour.

28th April 2021 Reviewed by Lisa Chambers What lovely paper to use. You can really tell the difference. I have started to do pet portraits in watercolour and the ability to lift out colour, glaze many times so you can achieve a likeness is amazing on this paper which tolerates so much. I save it for my special pieces not practice.
