Welcome to dickblick
Arches papers aren't just for watercolors. Use them also for drawing, calligraphy, gouache, printmaking, acrylics, and even digital printing. Manufactured from pure cotton fiber, they are so durable that they will remain beautiful and vibrant for centuries without conservation, if stored and handled properly.
Many artists say they choose Arches because working on an inferior surface just isn't worth the effort. And no other watercolor paper provides such a huge selection of sizes, surfaces, and formats for creative expression.
Arches Bright White is mouldmade without optical brighteners or bleaches. The pulp is brighter than the Natural White Sheet, thus showing colors more intensely from the surface.
This paper features two deckle edges, two waterline edges, and a watermark. This sheet offers the same durability and strength as the Natural White sheet. Just like the original Arches, it is acid-free, pH-neutral, gelatin-sized, and air-dried. Both 140 lb (300 gsm) and 300 lb (640 gsm) weights are available.
Handling Charge — When ordering sheets of paper or board larger than 18” x 24” in quantities of less than 10, a $3.00 per order handling fee applies. Paper or boards may be assorted to reach the quantity of 10.

By plein air fool
from Columbus, Ohio
I love the way the paper reflects the light through the watercolor paint!The rough paper doesn't have the texture that I like but still great fordry brush techniques.
Makes a difference in your painting!
from The Villages
We use it in our watercolor class all the time. It absorbs paints so that the top layer is glowing, and darker colors are pulled through.
Hi...this paper is great and a great deal.
By Norah who is a new American
I use the arches paper fo Dr. Martins watercolors which are very brilliant. I get terrific colors and blends. and considering the price ...truly fits my budget.

great paper, but dirty fingerprints
from Seattle, WA
Arches is the best watercolor paper I've tried. This is great paper. That being said, I'm only giving this product 4 stars because 2 of the 10 sheets I ordered came with dirty fingerprints and some scuffs on them (if the dirt was only on the edges of the paper I wouldn't mind, but these dirt smudges were nearer to the center of the paper, which is unacceptable). I'm paying $4+ per sheet so I expect ALL of them to be clean. I will probably buy my arches paper from a different company in the future because I've only had this problem with dickblick. maybe you should clean your hands or wear gloves when packing up the order. thank you!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
