Arches 140LB Cold Press Watercolour Blocks
Arches Cold Pressed papers feature a traditional semi textured surface to create that classic watercolour look.
Made the traditional way, on a cylinder mould, this paper has a harmonious natural grain. The fibres are evenly distributed, making the paper more stable, with very limited deformation.
Made of long 100% cotton fibres, ARCHESÂ® Watercolour paper can absorb a lot of water without warping or causing the colours to bleed.
Exclusive to ARCHESÂ®: it is sized to the core with natural gelatin, which means it can be scratched without tearing or linting. It also preserves the lustre and transparency of the colours whilst preventing paints penetrating into the thickness of the paper. Blocks are gummed around the sides to allow for working without having to tape down the sheets.
