More Information

Bockingford Watercolour Paper is proudly manufactured in England, made traditionally on a cylinder mould machine at St. Cuthberts Mill, using only the purest materials to archival standards.

Their Fat Pads are ideal for any & all artists looking for high quality, forgiving & affordable paper.
Available in two textures & several sizes, these spiral-bound landscape pads each contain 25 sheets of 300gsm acid-free paper.

NOT (cold-pressed)
The terms "NOT" and "Cold-Pressed" are interchangeable, so you may see either, but they are referring to the same paper.

This is the most widely available texture, thought to be the easiest surface to work on.
As such, even without experience in the field, what you may be picturing as "watercolour paper" is likely around the right lines.

Very lightly textured, with a slight tooth, allowing for the paint to sink into the surface.
Also sympathetic to more detailed work.

Mould Made
Although these can be mistaken for handmade papers, in fact they simulate this using a mechanised process.
The mould is replaced by a slowly rotating cylinder mould, which picks up the paper stock from the vat.
The paper is then deposited onto a continuously moving woollen felt.

This combines the consistent quality of machine made (fourdrinier) papers, whilst maintaining the individual character of more traditionally handmade papers.
They are of particular interest to artists due to their superior surface stability, beautiful surface texture & resistance to tearing.
