Description

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.

Q&A (1)
Q How many sheets are there in these pads? Are they on sale at the Charing Cross Rd store? Do they come in single sheets? I'm assuming this paper is suitable for pastels - as I can't find any paper on your site specificially for pastels. It needs to have enough tooth. Many thanks Diana
A

Each of the Arches 300gsm blocks contains 20 sheets. All of the sizes except the 46 x 61 are stocked by our Charing Cross shop and will be the same price as online. As these are a block and gummed round all edges, they are ideal for watercolour as the paper does not require stretching, although it could also be used for pastels. We do also stock single larger sheets, which are available singually in our shops and in packs of 10 online. 

More specific pastel papers can be found in Paper Section of the website and which includes the Daler Rowney Ingres Pastel Pads which have excellent tooth for using with pastels.
