The Arches brand

L???histoire de la marque Arches?? commence en 1492. Cette ann??e l??, le site d???Arches termine le regroupement des productions de papiers qui se faisaient autour du village d???Arches, au sud d???Epinal.

The Moulins d???Arches turned to the production of high quality paper for the period's most famous writings and most beautiful art publications. The mill thus printed incunabula (the name given to the first printed books) such as the "Chronique de Gutenberg" by D??rer. Also printed on Arches?? paper was the "Description of Egypt" commissioned by Napoleon I upon his return from his Egyptian campaign; the work was used by the royalty from 1809 to 1828.

Since 1492, Arches?? has stood for professional quality for artists. Its pure cotton products, mould-made in the traditional way, have a natural grain which resembles that of hand-made paper. This process also produces a more stable paper, whose form is not significantly altered when wet, because of the excellent distribution of its long cotton fibres. Arches?? Watercolor papers also boast unique sizing using natural gelatine, giving the paper incomparable resistance to scratching and exceptional rendering of colours.

The Arches?? range comprises the following papers:
- Arches????Watercolor papers??: chosen by professional artists since 1492.
- Arches????Drawing papers??:??these mould-made papers have a puffy aspect, an exceptional feel and excellent conservation qualities.
- Arches????Printmaking papers??:??these papers are used by the world's greatest lithographers, printmakers and art print lovers: V??lin d???Arches??, BFK Rives??, V??lin Johannot??, Arches?? Ingres MBM, Arches Platine??, Arches 88??.

This is the best paper at the best price. My only wish is that it would qualify for the free shipping on offer as everything I buy is online and has to be posted.

I ordered the lighter weight paper as the price of the heavy weight Arches rough paper was just getting to be too much for me. As there was a generous sale on it has proved to be quite economical and i am sorry i did not order more at the time. It is reasonably rough but not overly so and seems to endure a fair amount of painting over and over despite how thin the paper seems and definitely needs stretching. An unexpected benefit was that the paper comes sandwiched in two sheets of masonite which can act as a place of storage - also the order came incredibly quickly. It takes the side of the dry brush beautifully and the sizing seems about right - the paint sinks in but not excessively so that a lot of overglazing is required.

This paper is just as expected as i have used it before - good quality, textured but not too textured, takes the paint well. Requires stretching. Now i know Seniors fulfill my order almost as soon as i make it, I know this is a great way to obtain paper. And the price was brilliant as bought during their month of 20% off so 30% off total.
