Arches Watercolour Sheets
Arches Watercolour paper is made the traditional way, using a cylinder mould.
This method ensures that the fibres are evenly distributed which makes the paper extremely stable, so it will not warp or stretch when water is applied to it.
Arches Watercolour paper is made from long, 100% cotton fibres allowing it to absorb a lot of water without warping or causing the colours to bleed.
It is sized to the core with natural gelatine, so it can be scratched without tearing or linting.
This internal sizing also prevents the paint from penetrating into the paper, allowing light to shine through the pigment and reflect off the paper while ensuring the durability of the colours.
BW = Bright White.
Masking Fluid vs Gum Arabic when masking in watercolour painting | Winsor & Newton MasterclassThis Masterclass demonstrates the difference between masking with Masking Fluid and masking with Gum Arabic. You can use either method to repel the paint from the paper, keeping areas of your watercolour painting clean and white. Both methods are effective, but will give different results: The Masking fluid gives a clean, hard edge to your masked out area, while Gum Arabic gives a softer edge.
What different pinks do Winsor and Newton offer? | Winsor & Newton MasterclassThis masterclass shows the different pinks Winsor and Newton offer in watercolour and in gouache. Here we learn a bit about the sourcing and development of pinks, where pigments originate from and their properties. For example did you know that the now synthetic colour Carmine used to come from crushed beetles or that Rose Madder still comes from a plant root discovered by George Field?
