Arches watercolor paper has a smooth structure due to the Hotpress technique. The paper is 'natural white,' similar to cream/off-white. Arches have excellent quality watercolor paper; they combine traditional techniques with the latest paper possibilities. The paper is 300 grams and 100% made of cotton, which ensures the best water absorption.
The core is glued with natural gelatin: this glue does not soak into the paper. The paper does not buckle very much when you wet the paper.
The difference between Cold Pressed and Hot Pressed:
Just like standard watercolor paper, the Arches Cold Pressed paper has a structure. This is an excellent combination with liquid watercolor. Do you want to try something different? Then Hot Pressed paper is a good idea for you! This paper is much smoother, so the paint reacts differently. It flows a little easier and therefore gives a different look to your illustration or painting.
The Arches paper is available in the following sizes:
- A5 14,8x21 €9,49
- A4 21x29,7cm €13,95
Each paper block contains 12 sheets.
