PS42. Arches WC HP 90 LB 22x30
Arches Watercolor
Hot Press 90lb.185gsm. 22"x30".

Superior quality, 100% rag, for pen and all techniques with opaque and transparent watercolor. Long used by calligraphers. HP (Hot press) finish is a very smooth sheet that will give a sharp smooth edge to your letters. Cold press watercolor paper can be used for calligraphy but the letters won't be as crisp. You will see the cold press texture in your lettering. This has always been one of our most popular sheets.

This paper ships separately from books/supplies and requires an extra shipping fee which is NOT included in the price of this product. Add item 'PS00' to your cart after adding large sheets of paper. (click to read details)
