Archivally made from 100% cotton, Arches Oil Paper features a powerful oil barrier that absorbs water, solvents and binder but allows paints and pigments to sit up on the surface for a vibrant effect. Thanks to its semi-absorbent surface, the paint stays on the surface for an excellent rendering of the colours and faster drying times.

Available in packs of ten 22x30" sheets, 12 sheet tape-bound pads or generous 51" x 10 yard rolls, it's easy to tear down the paper to virtually any size you need. With its strong, tough composition, Arches Oil can withstand vigorous painting techniques, rubbing and scraping, and is heavy enough to support impasto layers. Perhaps best of all is its convenience: there's no preparation necessary, no need to size, gesso or prime — Arches Oil Paper is ready to use right out of the package! Simply pull out a sheet and paint — then when finished, it's simple to store, transport, or frame completed paintings. Perfect for bringing on plein air painting trips, for creating quick sketches or finished works in oils, for multimedia art and more, new Arches Oil Paper is an essential addition to any oil painter's repertoire!

Arches 1401b. Oil Paper, Blocks & Rolls is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arches oil paper This paper is divine. The sizing is invisible and doesn't affect the way the brush meets it. It feels as though I'm painting on cold press watercolor paper. The results are incredibly beautiful. I'm hooked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready to paint, no priming I love Arches oil paper. I have been using it for a year now. It is surprising how nice and strong it is. The best feature about Arches oil paper is that you do not have to do any priming. It does not buckle and I love the deckle edge on the large 22X30 paper. I generally hinge the paper and let the edges show. I am very happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Watercolor Back side of paper is excellent for Watercolor. No need to stretch paper. No buckling of paper. Have used Arches in the past for Watercolor. This is the best ever. So much easier to handle. Recommended by my teacher. Have not yet tried painting with oils yet. I tend to try it soon. My teacher has tried painting with oils and it looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally Found It I use my oils like acrylics with just paint & Mona Lisa truly Odorless Mineral Spirits, doing several layers. I never liked canvas & held off on ordering this because it's not "plate smooth". However, it *is* smoother than most canvasses. After 5 minutes of playing with it, I knew I'd found the surface I've been needing. Yes, it's highly absorbent, as was the real gesso the Old Masters used. I seriously recommend one or two toning washes & let it dry about 24 hours before blocking things in. You can also use a white for this. It'll help the first layers not sink in so fast. It does get less absorbent & smoother as you go.

Does this oil paper need to be framed with glass? How is it back supported in a frame?

Asked by: Anjali
Framing with glass always cuts out a percentage of UV rays to which your work is exposed. Supporting your paper with a acid free foam core backing is essential. If you frame without a mat, use spacers to separate your work from direct contact from the glass to allow air circulation and prevent your paper from buckling. Talk to a professional framer to educate yourself about the preservation of your work.
