PS104. Arches MBM Watercolor Paper 25.5x20
Arches MBM Watercolor Paper 25.5" x 20"

This laid paper is recommended by Peter Thornton and others. Mouldmade in France, made of 75% cotton/25% sulphite, neutral pH, 105 gsm, laid finish. Buffered and gelatine sized. Ideal for pastels, charcoal, sanguine chalk, and pen and ink. Complimentary for art printing and binding. Cold Press surface.

Comments from Sandy Wagner on Arches MBM:
It has a lovely watermark. I first used it at a Peter Thornton workshop drawing the Adolf Bernd letters. It takes water media really nicely and no, it doesn't bleed. It's just a really nice all-round paper. It's a little heavier than the Canson Ingres. Like the other Ingres papers, it's laid only on one side. The other side is cold pressed similar to Arches Text. So bookmakers might have some considerations in laying out their signatures, although I have a nice stab bound book with the cold-pressed surface facing the laid surface.

The paper works well with inks and is heavy enough for washes and watercolor. Mouldmade in France. Grain direction is parallel to underlined dimension.

I70. Moon Palace Sumi Ink
Moon Palace Sumi
The Ink is now in a bottle with a Gold Label

While the packaging is a bit different, this is the highly sought after and highly recommended Japanese Sumi Ink. For both broad edge and pointed pen work. Dries waterproof. A great calligraphy ink.

"I like Moon Palace better, but both Moon Palace and Best Bottle are beautiful inks. The Moon Palace has a slight sheen to it, which I like. Michael suggested this ink to me so please tell him I said, "thank you". I just finished a job of 200 invitations with Moon Palace and the ink is beautiful. I did not dilute the ink.
A client just brought me invitations (slick paper) to address. This bride knew going into this that I probably couldn't do pointed pen. However, for fun, I tried the Sumi inks and to my surprise they worked pretty darn good. I usually have to use a sharpie on slick envelopes, yikes!!!"

--Clair F., Jan 2011.

Four sizes available:

2.0 oz (widemouthed jar)
6.0 oz (180ml)
