Paper:  Arches Aquarelle Hotpress 300 gsm

This paper is Acid-Free, Archival and made from 100% cotton.  Cotton gives the paper a beautiful texture and natural, long-lasting whiteness – so it won’t yellow over time.  As well strength and longevity.  It is a watercolour paper, but due to the fact that it is hotpress makes it an ideal paper for high detailed pencil drawings.  Thickness helps that you can still rub out any mistakes without tearing the paper.
