This fine art paper from Arches is mouldmade in France and is considered the most popular watercolor paper in the world. Arches natural grain features evenly distributed fibers that slacken uniformly when wet, and is the only watercolor paper in the world that is sized with gelatin to the core. This process ensures color vibrancy and transparency while preventing paints from penetrating the paper.

Easily create washes, layer colors, and erase without tearing or lifting. Arches Watercolor paper can absorb large amounts of water with little deformation, and its strength, beauty, and white color will last a lifetime.

Each 22 x 30 sheet features 4 natural deckled edges and is 100% cotton rag and acid-free. The extremely smooth Hot Pressed surface is fantastic for watercolor techniques, pen and ink drawings, printmaking, airbrush, and all types of calligraphy pens.

Please specify in the comment section of your order if you would like your paper left as a full sheet, or quarter-cut into 4 pieces.
*Shipping Note:* Paper left as a full sheet will need to be shipped in a tube, which will result in a slightly larger shipping cost.

  • Great for pointed-pen calligraphy 5

    Posted by Meyerlemon F. on Aug 8th 2022

    I was looking for a hot press watercolor paper that is not too thick and suitable for pointed pen work, this one fits the bill. P&IA also offered to cut the paper, which worked to my advantage as the size that I need is quite small. Also, some may suggest that there's a "right side" to a paper, I found both sides of this paper to be the "right side" aka, there's no bad-side, which helps especially for testing specific color/media.
