Arches paper is currently one of the most popular watercolor papers in the world. Arches is the product of five centuries of papermaking experience. It is gelatin sized, air dried and hand inspected as part of the mill's stringent quality control.
This 100% cotton mould-made paper features a proprietary coating designed for fine art photography and printmaking with pigment- or dye-based inks on inkjet printers. Importantly, the paper beneath the coating is the celebrated Arches cold press (textured) or hot press (smooth), so the distinctive textures, pleasing hand, and aesthetic beauty are retained.
