Water Colour Spiral Pads

Spiral bound watercolour pads are practical as they allow you to keep watercolour paintings in the pad without fear of them falling out of the binding, yet with the freedom of continuing your work on subsequent pages.  Glued pads often do not have a strong enough binding to give you this choice.  Each of the pages has a perforated line across one side where the wire spiral binding threads itself through to keep the page in place, so you must be aware that some of the page will be ‘lost’ because of this when taking into account the pad dimensions.  All watercolour paper for sale at jacksonsart.com is 100% acid free, but not all of them are 100% cotton.  Cotton is the strongest fibre used to make watercolour paper and it can withstand a greater degree of scrubbing without the paper falling apart.  However that said, there are many excellent quality papers available in spiral pads that are not 100% cotton - our favourites are our own brand, the Bockingford and Winsor and Newton Artist’s quality.  Student brand pads such as Winsor and Newton Cotman and Strathmore 400 Series would make a good gift for a beginner of watercolour painting, and offer fantastic value for money.  The Arches Aquarelle Travel journal is a real treat for any serious watercolour painter - arguably the best watercolour paper available on the market today, spiral bound and cut to aesthetically pleasing proportions, this gem of a pad is specifically designed to be taken away on travels, a means of recording experiences and thoughts along the way. The ultra smooth surface of the Fabriano 5 Classico pad, combined with its bright white surface makes it a hit among botanical artists - on this surface the ability to describe the intricate details of nature such as veins on flower petals is astounding.  For those interested in painting on a tinted surface, we offer Bockingford Tinted pads - 5 different colours, 2 sheets of each.  The colours in the pad are neutral yet will provide instant uniformity, a ‘background’ colour that will give an overall theme to your work. Artists who are less concerned with intricate detail and more concerned with self expression may find the heavier tooth of Saunder Waterford Rough or Khadi paper more appealing; these papers allow pools of colour to form in heavy wash applications, creating an uneven and undulating surface that is vibrant and expressive - rather than have full control over your work, on these papers you are continually collaborating with the surface you are working on and the effect it has on the paint you apply to it.
