RayMar Arches Oil Paper Panels are premium archival panels with a revolutionary paper surface specially formulated for oil media.
The 140 lb (300 gsm) paper surface is ready to use with oils and oil pastels — no preparation necessary. The panels have a strong, toothy surface that withstands rubbing and scraping and supports heavy impasto layers.
Maintaining the look and feel of traditional Arches papers, Arches Oil Paper features a powerful, efficient oil barrier that absorbs water, solvents, and binders evenly while allowing the paint and pigment to remain on the surface for excellent color rendering and faster drying times. The acid-free paper has no optical brightening agents, which improves its archival integrity.
Panels are made with careful attention to detail. The oil paper is mounted to Raymar’s 1/8" MDF panels using a pH-neutral adhesive. A gray melamine backing creates a moisture barrier that resists warping and deterioration over time. Because the paper is pre-mounted on board, it's easy to frame (without glass) when varnished.
RayMar Arches Oil Paper Panels are a wonderful choice for professional artists and students painting in the studio or en plein air.

from Benton, AR
I like Arches oil paper as a surface for oil and egg tempera. These panels are great for convenience (saves time making my own panels), and also for assuring a non-warped, archival surface. Even if you use water-soluble oils or egg tempera (with a lot of water), these stay flat. The paper surface may get rough if you scrub with water, but it's generally very sturdy and the paint adheres well. Dick Blick should consider better packing for these, since the corners can get chipped or mashed in transit. Luckily the small defects in a couple of mine will be covered by the frame. But I also want to say that Dick Blick's customer service is outstanding! If I've ever had a problem, they have been very easy to communicate with and promptly addressed the situation. Great company to deal with.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great control over oil media and fast drying!
from Greencastle, Indiana
This was the first time I used Arches oil paper 58a raymar. So I was not sure how it would react. The paper took lots of paint. I was trying to use less paint at first because, it was watercolor paper. But surprising, it absorbed lots of paint. I was even able to change the size of the ear. I moved the hair around. I had just as much control on this paper as Belgian linen canvas. It was possible to do layers, not use medium. It was much faster. I had it done in three days. The advantage to this paper over canvasarchivable paperOnly used turpIt was possible to do layers, without waitingIt was much faster Cheaper than archivable canvasSmaller rabbit for framing
