Arches ' Worlds Finest " Water Color Paper, Deckled Edges,
Ideal for watercolor painting, as for all wet techniques such as ink, gouache and acrylic. The cotton gives the paper beauty, a natural, lasting whiteness and an inimitable touch as well as strength and longevity. 3 textures: cold pressed, hot pressed and rough. ARCHES® Aquarelle has an even, natural grain. The choice of texture will depend on the medium used by the artist. As a general rule, though, texture is a matter of personal choice for the artist, part of the process of artistic creation and expression. Sized to the core with natural gelatin: a process exclusive to ARCHES®. ARCHES® is the only paper mill in the world to gelatin size its watercolor paper “to the core”. Even if it is soaked for a long time, the paper will still retain enough gelatin not to become too absorbent.
