Arches Watercolor Pads
These tape-bound, fold-over watercolor pads are perfect for use in “plein air," outdoor, painting and are easy for an artist to carry on their travels. The paper in each pad is gelatin sized, which creates a consistent surface texture and makes the paper absorbent yet strong.
A staple in the papermaking world, Arches creates paper that has been relied upon and valued by artists for five centuries. Here, Arches supplies superior quality watercolor paper that is durable and resilient enough to withstand mediums besides watercolor, like acrylics, gouache and printmaking inks.
Paper is 140 lb. (300 gsm) natural white, acid-free, 100% cotton
Available in Cold Press and Hot Press with 12 sheets per pad
FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they're now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a "toy store for artists." 80 years in and they're still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
