Mouldmade of 100% cotton, Saunders Waterford is gelatin sized, and neutral pH. Each block contains 20 sheets of 140 lb (300 gsm) paper available in three surface finishes. Cold Press is an intermediate surface and is great for most types of paintings. Each of the three surfaces is resilient to buckling and offers exceptional color stability.
The St. Cuthberts Mill in Wells, England, has been producing paper for more than 250 years. Saunders Waterford® watercolour paper is produced on a conventional cylinder mould. The cylinder machine is covered with natural woollen felts, giving the 100% cotton paper a characteristic randomized texture. The paper is capable of withstanding abrasive treatments like scraping and scrubbing since it is both internally and externally sized. Calcium carbonate is used as a buffer to prevent acid fading on each sheet.
The Royal Watercolor Society has approved Saunders Waterford® watercolour paper. The oldest and most renowned watercolour society in the world is The Royal Watercolor Society.
