Acrylic & Oil Painting Paper Sheets

At Pegasus Art our extensive range of art paper includes acrylic and oil painting paper sheets and boards that will certainly serve you well. These papers and boards are specifically designed for use with either acrylic or oil paints and will save you the time of preparing and priming other types of paper.

Hassle Free Option - Dedicated Oil & Acrylic Paper

It is possible to sketch and paint in oils on paper. However, even heavyweight watercolour papers require some preparation if you are using oils. Oil paints and the paint media like solvents have a lower surface tension than water based paints. If the paper you use is not sufficiently primed the oils are absorbed immediately into the paper. This can result in a halo effect around the pigment. After some time has elapsed the paint or media can bleed through the paper. You can prime watercolour papers for use with oils and they may also require stretching but proprietary oil painting paper is a hassle free option that will save you time and produce excellent results.

Quality Paper from Top Brands

Arches Oil Painting Paper is 100% cotton paper which is ready to use oil paint on without priming or surface preparation. The built in oil barrier absorbs solvents and binders whilst allowing the pigments to adhere effectively to the surface.

Clairfontaine Oil Painting Linen Texture Paper is supplied in large sheets which can be cut to size. Linen is a great alternative to canvas and provides an excellent surface to bond with oils. This paper is made using waterproof additives which ensures that it is impermeable to oils and solvents but still provides colour adhesion to the surface. The grain is similar to primed canvas but this paper is more economical to use and is ideal for travelling.
