Easy to use, easy to frame, easy to store, and lightweight to transport, Arches Oil Paper is an oil painter's dream!
The look and feel of traditional Arches papers, but is specially formulated for oil painting - requires no preparation! This 140lb (300gsm) high-tech paper was specifically designed for oil painting, yet it maintains the look and feel of traditional Arches papers. It features a powerful, efficient oil barrier that absorbs water, solvents, and binders evenly while allowing the paint and pigment to remain on the surface. Arches Oil Paper has an exceptionally tough surface. It withstands heavy brushing with stiff bristle brushes, as well as wet paint removal with turpentine and a rag. It also stands up well to palette knives.
The Perfect Partner for DANIEL SMITH Water-Soluble Oil Colors!
This paper is "ready to use" without preparation, making it less brittle and stiff than gessoed papers and resistant to chipping or cracking. What's more, because it's a natural Arches paper, it can easily be cut to a desired size, rolled, and transported.
