French-made Montval is well-loved for its resistance to repeated washing. In block form it creates a reliable surface for studio and field use—with a superior cold press texture for watercolor, gouache, wash and acrylics.
The acid-free, mildew-resistant paper preserves art. Natural white sheets come on blocks bound on all four sides, preventing curling and eliminating the need for a working surface underneath. Sheets are removed with ease using a standard razor blade.
Available in cold press, 140 lb. (300 g m/2), block sizes are 9" x 12" or 12" x 16"; 15 sheet blocks.
