Bockingford Hot Pressed Watercolour Fat Pads offer exceptional quality at an affordable price. The paper weight is 300gsm (140lbs), and the hot pressed surface is calcium carbonate buffered with a pH of 7-9.
This makes it easy to lift the colour wash to get back to the white base paper.
The paper will last for hundreds of years (in good storage conditions) and won’t discolour or fall apart. It is short grain and is composed of 100% wood-free bleached chemical pulp, internally sized.
In addition to watercolour the paper accepts pastel, gouache, acrylic, pencil, charcoal and pen & ink. The paper can also be used for certain print techniques and bespoke cartons. Bockingford is a beautiful English watercolour paper, traditionally made on a cylinder mould machine at St Cuthberts Mill. This is a high quality paper made using pure materials to archival standards.
Its attractive surface is created using natural woollen felts that give it a distinctive random texture. Appreciated for its excellent colour lifting abilities. This is an extremely forgiving watercolour paper valued by professional and amateur artists around the world.
