WC SHEET CP
Exclusive to Arches, gelatin sizing to the core preserves the lustre and transparency of the colours whilst preventing paints from penetrating into the paper. Even if it is soaked for a long time, the paper will still retain enough gelatin not to become too absorbent. It allows superposing of washes and gives it added strength to resist erasing and scratching without tearing or linting. It also allows paints to be removed using either wet or dry techniques, easily revealing the whiteness of the paper. Arches Aquarelle can absorb a large amount of water with limited deformation. This paper's 100% long cotton fibre composition gives the paper its beauty, a natural, lasting whiteness and an inimitable touch as well as strength and longevity.
Aquarelle has an even, natural grain. The choice of texture will depend on the medium used by the artist but as a general rule, though, texture is a matter of personal choice for the artist, part of the process of artistic creation and expression.
Made on a cylinder mould, a traditional process, keeps the quality close to that of paper made by craft methods. The slow turning of the cylinder enables the fibres to be deposited evenly and spread in all directions over the wire. The paper is homogeneous, with a flatter surface and better wet strength and stability, giving the artist more control. Paper made on a cylinder mould produces paper with deckle edges.
