Original Arches Natural White Watercolor Paper has been prized by artists since the founding of-ᅠArches-ᅠin 1492. This legendary paper is still made with natural cotton fibers, carefully selected for their absorbency and durability. Arches Watercolor Paper is mould-made. The cylinder-mould machine ensures that fibers are not closely aligned but are randomly oriented and densely interwoven in all directions, adding considerable strength to the paper and producing a natural,-ᅠattractively textured surface, with the look and feel of a vintage hand-made paper.

Each sheet is acid-free, pH-neutral, gelatin-sized, and air-dried. Sheets have two natural deckle edges and are watermarked and embossed.

Arches-ᅠpapers are built on the knowledge and experience of yesterday's craftsmen, combined with modern innovation, creating important new features and improvements in the paper's performance. If stored and handled properly, they will remain beautiful and vibrant for centuries without conservation. This versatile paper is ideal for drawing, calligraphy and other mixed media.

Cold Press --ᅠThe cold press finish has a light texture and is the most common texture. -ᅠIt reflects light well, retaining the transparent quality of watercolors. A light grain make it easier to achieve certain details.-ᅠNot just for watercolors,-ᅠArches Cold Press is also recommended for gouache, acrylic and airbrush.

Hot Press --ᅠThe hot press finish is primarily used for portraits. Discreet and reserved, it focuses attention on the subject of the work, emphasizing the drawing. However with such a subtle medium a certain degree of technical mastery is essential. Not just for watercolors, Arches Hot Press is also recommended for gouache, acrylic, colored pencil, pen and ink and technical pens.

Rough --ᅠThe rough finish has an effect close to that of handmade paper. This rough grain paper helps to achieve valuable effects of texture.-ᅠNot just for watercolors, Arches Hot Press-ᅠis also recommended-ᅠfor gouache, acrylic, charcoal and-ᅠpastel.
