Arches Oil Paper
Arches Oil Paper is specially formulated for use with oil media - and requires no preparation! This 140 lb (300 gsm) high-tech paper was specifically designed for oil painting, yet it maintains the look and feel of traditional Arches papers. It features a powerful, efficient oil barrier that absorbs water, solvents, and binders evenly while allowing the paint and pigment to remain on the surface. Arches Oil Paper has an exceptionally tough surface. It withstands heavy brushing with stiff bristle brushes, as well as wet paint removal with turpentine and a rag. It also stands up well to palette knives. This paper is "ready to use" without preparation, making it less brittle and stiff than gessoed papers and more resistant to chipping or cracking. What's more, because it's a natural Arches paper, it can easily be cut to a desired size, rolled, and transported.

22" x 30" Sheet 300 GSM  $13.35
9" x 12" Pad (12 sheets per pad) 300 GSM $22.95
