The watercolour paper texture is smooth having been through the hot pressing rollers, is a superb artist’s paper. 640gsm paper (300lbs) is a heavyweight watercolour paper and stretching watercolour paper of this weight is not necessary to create ideal watercolour painting conditions. Arches paper is similar to Saunders Waterford but white in colour (even whiter than Saunders Waterford High White). Like Saunders Waterford, Arches papers are 100% cotton, have a consistent surface for the smooth laying down of a watercolour wash. Designed for watercolour artists, consistent, highly regarded and of archival quality; more pricey than some other watercolour papers but artists who use this paper feel it is worth the price.. Arches is a French company, around since the 15th Century so they have had plenty of practice. You will notice a definite difference if you have never used paper of this quality before. As a pure cotton product, mould-made in the traditional way, Arches watercolour paper has a natural grain resembling handmade paper, the rough texture surface is immensely popular and encourages the formation of interesting painterly brush strokes.
The manufacturing process produces a stable strong paper, whose basic form is not significantly changed when wet, because of the excellent distribution of its long cotton fibres. Natural gelatine is used for sizing giving Arches Watercolor papers outstanding resistance to scratching and also boast unique sizing using natural gelatine, giving the paper incomparable resistance to scratching.
