If you’re using watercolour paint, you’ll need some quality watercolour paper sheets to bring your vision to life. Made of 100% cotton, the best watercolour papers are highly absorbent with an excellent texture that remains at peak saturation longer than other types of painting paper. This gives the artist plenty of time to work on larger areas. With free shipping when you spend over $100, be sure to stock up on art paper while you can.
Available in smooth, medium and rough acid-free sheets, you can choose from a range of paper thicknesses, from 185gsm through to 850gsm. If you’re not sure what thickness you’ll need, below are some guidelines:
185gsm - very thin paper ideal for card making, light applications of paint and practice
300gsm - The standard offering a balance of good paper weight for most artists’ needs.
638gsm - designed for heavy applications of paint & water for lasting works!
850gsm - the thickest we stock, perfect for heavy applications of paint & water for lasting works!
Your watercolour paper can be any size or colour. We stock white paper sheets as well as a heritage colour, but opting for white will give the brightest resulting image. Bear in mind that your paper should be stretched before use to avoid wrinkling during painting.
