Arches Oil blocks

Arches Oil blocks

ARCHES® paper is made on a cylinder mould (traditional process): quality close to that of paper made by craft methods. The paper is homogeneous, with a flatter surface and better wet strength and stability, giving the artist more control.

Designed for oil painting and oil pastels.

Available in 300 gsm what is the perfect balance artists need to express their creativity. Its grammage and thickness are suited to the application of both washes and impasto. 

100% cotton with unique sizing and oil barrier (semi-absorbent surface). Ready to use without preparation (priming optional). Resistant to scratching. Prevents greasy rings forming and protects the fibres from oxidation in contact with the paint. Very tolerant to solvents. The paint sits on the surface for an excellent rendering of the colours and faster drying times.
