Product Description

Arches papers aren’t just for watercolors. Use them for drawing, calligraphy, gouache, printmaking, acrylics, and even digital printing. Manufactured from pure cotton fiber, they are so durable that they will remain beautiful and vibrant for centuries without conservation, if stored and handled properly.


Many artists say they choose Arches because working on an inferior surface just isn’t worth the effort. And no other watercolor paper provides such a huge selection of sizes, surfaces, and formats for creative expression.


Arches is the product of five centuries of papermaking experience. Arches watercolor papers are mouldmade in France, with 100% cotton fiber content. They are acid-free, pH-neutral, gelatin-sized, and air-dried. You can rely on Arches to always be consistent.


Arches Watercolor Blocks contain natural white, mouldmade watercolor paper that is cut and glued with a black glue in convenient blocks. There are 20 sheets of 140 lb (300 gsm) paper per block with a black protective sheet as the first layer.
