Arches Watercolor Blocks consist of beautiful 100% pure cotton rag paper that has been mold-made, cut and tape-bound into blocks made for easy use in any environment. A staple in the papermaking world, Arches creates paper that has been relied upon and valued by artists for five centuries. Here, Arches supplies superior quality watercolor paper that is durable and resilient enough to withstand mediums besides watercolor, like acrylics and printmaking inks.
The block format eliminates the need for stretching the watercolor paper in preparation for painting. The blocks’ strong binding on all sides holds the paper rigid and flat. When finished, just separate and detach the paper using a palette knife or a similar tool. The paper is acid-free, pH neutral and air-dried, all for the utmost consistency.
