Saunders Watercolour Papers

Regarded by watercolourists as one of the best watercolour papers available, this paper is 100% archival and very durable due to the fact it is mould-made and gelatine sized. Saunders Waterford has a watermark in the corner for authenticity and 2 deckle edges which are visually beautiful and perfect for float framing.

This paper will not discolour or fall apart over time and is made of 100% cotton. This paper is much more durable than lower grades of paper and it can withstand scrubbing without falling apart.

Hot Pressed is a smooth surface finish, perfect for detailed line work. 

Cold Pressed is good for all types of watercolour painting.
