  • Arches 140# cold press paper

    Reviewed on 8/24/2012

    As reviewed by Sylvia Brofos

    Experience: PROFESSIONAL

    This is one of the most user-friendly papers and I recommend it to all my students. It takes the paint well and can be reworked. I like to work on saturated paper and this paper can be soaked and worked on, dried, re-soaked and still handles well.

    Arches 140# cold press paper is the best! I've used it for years and make every effort to get my students to use it too, so they will know the satisfaction of working on good paper. It does make a difference.
