Saunders Waterford is an exquisite watercolour paper, traditionally made on a cylinder mould machine. This is the superior quality watercolour paper made by St Cuthbert’s Mill and comes with the Royal Watercolour Society’s endorsement. Made using 100% cotton, the highest quality papermaking material, to high archival standards. Each sheet is buffered with calcium carbonate to help defend finished pieces of work from discoloration caused by acids present in atmospheric pollution.
Highest quality papermaking material with excellent archival properties. The paper will last for hundreds of years (in good storage conditions) and won’t discolor or fall apart. It is 100% Cotton, acid Free, and archival
Its attractive surface is created using natural woolen felts that give it a distinctive random texture. The surface is sized in gelatin making it strong and resilient to scrubbing, and other rough treatments.
Choose from Cold Press, Hot Press or Rough surface. The 4 deckle edges are visually very beautiful, and are perfect for float framing. The beautiful random surface texture enhances the finished painting. Makes the sheet very strong and assists with flow of wash from brush to paper. It is resistant to scrubbing and other extreme treatments like masking fluid removal.
