Saunders Waterford Watercolour Paper 22 x 30″ 14o lb. Paper – Individual Sheets

Saunders Waterford is an exquisite watercolour paper, which is traditionally made on a cylinder mould machine. This is the superior quality watercolour paper made by St Cuthbert’s Mill and even comes with the Royal Watercolour Society’s endorsement. It is made using 100% cotton, the highest quality papermaking material, to high archival standards. Each sheet is buffered with calcium carbonate, thus helping to defend finished pieces from discoloration caused by acids present in atmospheric pollution.

Because this paper is made with the highest quality papermaking material, the result is excellent archival properties. This paper will last for hundreds of years (in good storage conditions). It won’t discolor or fall apart, because it is 100% Cotton, acid Free, and archival.

The attractive surface is created using natural woolen felts, thus creating a distinctive random texture which is ideal for granulating colors. The paper surface is sized in gelatin, so it is strong and resilient to scrubbing, and other rough treatments.

Choose from Cold Press, Hot Press or Rough surface.

The 4 deckled edges are visually very beautiful, and are perfect for float framing. The beautiful, random surface texture enhances the finished painting. This makes the sheet very strong and assists with the flow of watercolor from brush to paper. It is resistant to scrubbing and other extreme treatments like masking fluid removal because of this.
