Millford is the newest watercolour paper developed by St Cuthberts Mill. It is styled on the discontinued Whatman watercolour paper, after artists grieved the loss of this unique type of watercolour paper.

It is mould made from 100% cotton (just like the original Whatman), and it's beautiful surface is created using natural woollen felts. It is deliberately created to have a high resistance to water, so it’s washes perform very differently to traditional watercolour papers.

Wow! I never tried Whatman but I had heard so much about it's replacement, Millford, that I had to try it and this is my honest opinion.
The surface texture is neither too obtrusive or too feint, but in the goldilocks zone: just right! The colour is good with no creamy cast to it or overly 'blue white.' The surprise came when I started wet in wet as the pigment virtually stayed put, and needed a little coaxing even with quite an amount of water. I find that this has great benefits when painting water or skies, and even pigments noted to run if not prudently placed like Perylenes or Quinacridones still only move relatively slowly.
I really like this paper and it's sizing, and I agree with another reviewer that a rough version would be nice.
The brands of watercolours that I have used are: Sennelier, W+N, Daniel Smith, and Maimeri Blu, all of which are superb pigments. (Posted on 25/06/2017)

Great, but there SHOULD be a watermark to show the preferred side for painting on, and also to show the difference between Bockingford and Millford as they are almost identical to look at. (Posted on 16/03/2017)

Paper works well with my Rembrandt Watercolours. It is just like the old Whatman paper, just a shame they don't do it in rough. (Posted on 16/03/2017)

I have not yet had a chance to use it, but have high hopes! I have rated it simply because the form seems to require and will not submit without that! (Posted on 16/03/2017)

This paper is more waterproof than water resistant. It is definitely not a replacement for Whatman. (Posted on 23/12/2015)

a little too soft and textured for pen and ink. Was put off by this so haven't tried painting yet. (Posted on 21/08/2015)

Just tried it. Paint on with Winsor & Newton and Horadam. Really close to good old Whatman. Amazing fine paper. Excellent behavior. (Posted on 20/08/2015)
