Arches Aquarelle Blocks are the finest watercolour paper you can buy. Arches have been making paper since 1492, so they’ve had plenty of time to get it just about perfect.
- This paper is made from 100% cotton fibre and is acid-free so, as long as you store them properly, your artworks will outlive you.
- It’s naturally pure white, with no optical brighteners, made with natural gelatin sizing and pre-stretched.
- Every single sheet is inspected before it leaves the factory, to make sure they’re perfectly consistent.
- The finished product is well able to stand up to tough treatment, so you can use multiple washes of colour and scrub away mistakes without worrying about damaging your work.
Many of the world’s leading watercolour artists use Arches papers, yet they’re also excellent for drawing, calligraphy, gouache, printmaking, acrylics and even digital printing.
Arches Aquarelle Cold Pressed blocks (also known as "Not" – in the sense of "not hot pressed") have a slightly textured surface, halfway between the smoothness of Arches Hot Pressed paper and the roughness of their Rough Blocks. Each block contains 20 sheets.
