Arches Huile Oil Pads
Finally, a durable and archival paper for oil painters. This paper is ready to use without preparation, can be cut or torn to size and is flexible like watercolour paper so can be rolled when the painting is dry. The new Arches Huile paper looks and feels like traditional Arches Aquarelle paper but has a high-tech oil barrier that allows you to paint with oil colour and solvents. The solvents absorb evenly while allowing the paint to sit on the surface. Arches Oil Paper has a tough surface that can take scrubbing with stiff bristle brushes, as well as lifting out highlights with solvents and a rag.
It is a lightweight alternative to a canvas surface and is great for oil sketches.
Available in 9×12″ and 12×16″. We also sell it by the 22″x30″ sheets.
