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.

Please note, this product has a Not (cold pressed) surface. The surface of the paper is slightly textured, and is not suitable for extremely detailed work. Most painters will find it suitable for most purposes. For more information on the production and properties of watercolour papers, click here.

An outstanding paper in a format that's portable and performs as well as if it had been stretched. (Posted on 16/03/2017)

When I put this high white paper next to the regular Saunders Waterford watercolor paper, I couldn't see any difference in the paper tone which I had expected. Still this is my favorite paper, it can take very rough handling and the surface is just lovely. (Posted on 20/08/2015)

The block is perfect for my 2 hour life painting/drawing sessions in town. It's portable and ready to go. The paper is lovely, though the surface sizing can vary a bit between sheets. (Posted on 22/06/2015)
