This superb artist grade paper from Saunders Waterford has a watermark in the corner for authenticity and 4 deckle edges which are visually beautiful and perfect for float framing.

Please note that while Saunders Waterford High White papers are noticeably whiter than the traditional Saunders Waterford paper, they still have a pale cream appearance. This is because it is not currently possible to whiten the paper to a bright white without compromising light-fastness by using Optical Brightening Agents. The whiter shade of Saunders Waterford High White paper is achieved by adding a high white lightfast pigment with good long-life properties, as used in some watercolour paints.

Artists grade watercolour paper is archival which means it will not discolour or fall apart over time and is made of 100% cotton rag. This paper is much more durable than lower grades of paper because it is gelatine surface sized and it is mould-made, both of which mean it can take scrubbing of the surface without falling apart.

Saunders Waterford paper is endorsed by the Royal Watercolour Society.

Please note, these sheets are hot-pressed: they have an extremely smooth surface, ideal for detailed watercolour painting. For more information on the production and properties of watercolour papers, click here.

This paper has been perfect for creating my Charcoal drawings on for my recent exhibition at the TYTO Regional Gallery in Queensland. I used Derwent Charcoal pencils medium and dark on this beautiful paper. (Posted on 22/05/2016)

Wonderful heavy paper that needs stretching but does not buckle or act like a bucking bronco as it dries. Watercolour does not lift very easily so will not be for all artists. I love it as it holds the paint without lifting making over painting a delight. Ideal for poster paint and gouache but also for watercolour when detail is important. (Posted on 20/08/2015)
