Arches Velin BKF Rives is a worldwide reference in the world of high-end art publishing papers! It is made on a cylinder mould, which offers a quality close to handmade papers. The slow turning of the cylinder enables the fibres to be deposited evenly and spread in all directions over the wire. The paper is therefore more homogeneous and has good dimensional stability. When printing, the job of positioning the humidified paper is much easier and the paper can easily withstand repeated passages through the press. Only papermaking on a cylinder mould can produce paper with deckle edges. Light fine grain: perfectly balanced soft grain and smooth surface that brings out the slightest detail. Allows the artist to obtain shadow and light effects, to create contrasts.
