Arches Aquarelle Watercolor Paper Blocks, 140lb (300gsm)


 
   
Collapse 


Arches is the product of five centuries of paper making experience. Arches Watercolor Blocks contain fine, mouldmade watercolor paper that is cut and tape bound in convenient blocks. Each block consists of sheets of paper that are pre-stretched, glued together along all four edges, and supported by a rigid backing. The top sheet is easily separated from the block by inserting a knife under the sheet and running it around the edges.

Aquarelle Arches watercolor paper is acid-free, chlorine-free, and made of 100% cotton fibers for extra strength and stability which eliminates the need for stretching. Arches uses no optical brighteners so its natural white color will not yellow with age.

You can rely on Arches to always be consistent; as the paper is tub-sized in natural gelatin and air-dried, it can take scrubbing, scratching, and erasing while keeping the original intensity of the watercolor. This paper is excellent for watercolor, gouache, pen and ink, acrylics, and calligraphy.

Sheets are 140lb (300 gsm) weight, with 20 sheets per block.

As far as I am concerned, the BEST.
Quality
How would you describe the quality of this product?
I've been using Arches watercolor blocks since I was a kid. I've never had a bad result. This handmade paper holds up to repeated scrubbing, making it easier to correct passages, and in my case there have been times I had to do this often, plein air painting... I cannot think of one downside to this product. It gives back far more than it costs...and yes, when I was first learning watercolor technique, it was on-site with elders in my home town. We would go on outings and they taught me to paint from nature... I must have been about 10 years old... I still remember that when they saw me advancing, they bought me my first Arches WC block...and thereafter I would save up for every replacement purchase throughout my career... And now, today, even though I have several Arches blocks in stock, I still go to this section of Daniel Smith and check on the prices... find myself wishing I had some extra cash ...lusting after a few more blocks, even though I KNOW I AM SUBMERGED IN MY OIL PAINT.
Performance
How did this product perform compared to your expectations?
I CANNOT THINK OF ONE BAD THING TO SAY ABOUT THIS PRODUCT. I find Arches paper to be suitable for all watercolor technigue and it holds up to repeated washes very, very well...and even scrubbing if brief corrections are necessary. i have never had this paper fail me in any way.
Use
What did you use this paper for?
I've done many "masterpieces" on-site with this paper. what I mean by this, I find the setting, the subject in nature, I set up early in the day and then paint until nightfall. for aseries of barn portraits I worked exclusively with arches...and every new painting made me hungry to use the paper/blocks more and more...even though I had already used this brand 20+ years by the time I am referring to... I have several blocks in backstock right now...ready and waiting for me. Indoors or outdoors.... I have even survived light rain with these blocks...not recommended, but when you are in a rush to finish, you'd be amazed how they serve you.
Value
Was this product true to its value?
Hell yes!
Overall Experience
What was your overall experience with this product?
I have a gazillion things to do right now, in fact it's 5 am and I just finished a painting session...seeing that there is only ONE review on this Daniel Smith site, I have to leave a full one here, true to my experience, that's how much I believe in arches...and even though I am not able to buy any today, it doesn't matter. I love this product. I wish I owned the factory!
