      Arches Watercolor Paper, Natural White

      $7.00

      Arches is made the traditional way, on a cylinder mould, and this watercolor paper has been the benchmark and standard that all other watercolor papers rival. 

      Its composition with long fibres of 100% cotton gives the paper its strength, beauty, a natural, lasting whiteness and an inimitable touch. The fibres are evenly distributed, so the paper slackens uniformly when wet. Arches is the only paper mill in the world to gelatin size its watercolour paper “to the core”. This preserves the lustre and transparency of the colors, while preventing paints from penetrating the paper. It gives added strength to resist erasing and scratching without tearing or linting; it will take an enormous amount of surface abuse. Arches also allows paints to be removed, either wet or dry, easily revealing the whiteness of the paper. 

      22" x 30" Natural White sheets

      Paper available from Store Pickup only

      FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they're now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a "toy store for artists." 80 years in and they're still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
