Artist Grade Watercolor Paper

Student Grade Watercolor Paper

Student Watercolor Papers are designed to have a texture and feel similar to artist papers, but they are not made of archival grade materials. Although they are acid buffered, the buffering will eventually be used up, depending on air quality, and the paper will begin to discolor and deteriorate. Use a student grade paper for practice work, but not for a work that is for sale.

Watercolor Pads

Watercolor Tape-Bound Pads feature either archival or acid-free paper. Archival watercolor papers are made with a fiber source, such as 100% cotton rag, that will last for centuries without conservation. Acid-free papers, based on cellulose fiber, will eventually yellow as their buffering is exhausted, depending on atmospheric conditions where they are stored and displayed. Although conservation is possible, their lifespan without conservation should be measured in decades, not centuries.
