Saunders Waterford Hot Press Watercolor Blocks, Various Sizes
Saunders Waterford is an exquisite English watercolor paper, traditionally made on a cylinder mould machine. This is the superior, professional quality paper made at St Cuthberts Mill and comes with the Royal Watercolor Society’s endorsement.
Made using 100% cotton, the highest quality paper-making material, to archival standards. Each sheet is buffered with calcium carbonate to help defend finished pieces of work from discoloration caused by acids present in pollution.
It’s attractive surface is created using natural woolen felts that give it a distinctive random texture. The surface is coated in gelatin making it strong and resilient to scrubbing and other rough treatments without the surface tearing.
Each block contains 20 sheets of White, 100% cotton, 140 lb (300 gsm) acid-free paper. Available in Cold Press, Hot Press or Rough Paper surfaces.
(The Hot Press surface of Saunders Waterford has a new improved smoother surface, making it much more suitable for botanical works.)
