Arches Aquarelle watercolour sheets are 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 fibres are distributed evenly, the paper slackens uniformly when wet, giving the artist more control. Only papermaking on a cylinder
mould can produce paper with deckle edges. This process can produce papers with a high grammage and exceptional resistance to scratching and erasing.

These Arches sheets are available in 3 textures:
*cold press: paper with a natural, harmonious grain, suited to the majority of techniques or subjects. It reflects the light and gives the pigments a sublimely
transparent effect.
*hot press: this paper undergoes an extra finishing process, passing through
a press to obtain a very smooth surface. The grain is imperceptible and absorbs the colours more quickly. It is suitable for detailed work and drawing very fine lines.
*rough: this is the paper with the most relief. This texture brings out the colours and gives volume.

  • Sizing: Sized to the core with natural gelatin: a process exclusive to Arches, who is the only paper mill in the world to gelatin size its watercolour paper to the core. Even if it is soaked for a long time, the paper will still retain enough gelatin not to become too absorbent.
  • Mould made: Made using a cylinder mould. A
    traditional process which produces very high quality papers similar to handmade paper. Arches has been using this method to make
    paper since 1895.

9th December 2019 Reviewed by Shannon Kirkwood Arches 140lb cold press is the paper I live my life by! It takes so much *** and is so forgiving, it’s difficult to NOT like it.

Any budding watercolorists should start on this paper if at all possible. It was monumental in my development as an artist!

30th January 2019 Reviewed by Jessica Kaye Unfortunately this arrived with a massive dent on one end of the paper making it unusable. I ordered this multiple times in the past and it was 100% fine. But the last 4 orders have all had dents. I hope you can resolve this issue.
