Created in consultation with the President and Council of the Royal Watercolour Society, this neutral white, artist-quality paper is designed for use with water-based paints. It is made from a mixture of cotton and linen, and is sized with gelatin. Each sheet is deckle-edged, and bears the stamp and watermark of the RWS.
At 425gsm, these are thick, high-quality sheets. They have a slightly textured surface, and are not suitable for extremely detailed work. Artists wishing to produce detailed work are advised to try the Hot-pressed versions of these sheets.
