Arches 1401b. Oil Paper, Blocks & Rolls is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 22.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This paper is fantastic. Watch other paper companies to follow Arches with a quality oil paper. I have been painting oils on paper for years and have typically used Fabriano Artistico 300lb, which is a terrific paper. The problem is first having to cover it with gesso of course. I was concerned this new paper might not be heavy enough to hold the paint (my applications are very thick); it does. The oils remain on top, luminous and the paper is not buckling or shrinking but is still pliable enough to roll. My one caution would be if you need to completely remove the paint, the paper seems to want to hold on to it. If you are in the habit of using a lot of paint thinners this might not be the paper for you. Otherwise, it is fantastic. This will be my preferred paper from now on. I love it! R. Waiksnis

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paper I have recently begun painting with oil pastels after yrs of using soft pastels. Due to allergies I had to switch to acrylic paints. When I discovered oil pastels I was thrilled to be able to paint/draw once again. Next I was trying various papers. When I saw Arches had this new paper for oils on the market I ordered a few sheets.The results were wonderful. The paper is easy to work with,colors are vibrant and after layering one can scrape back if correcting or experimenting. It is sturdy, great quality and totally compatible with oil pastels.Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best new product. Use it all the time as 5 x 8. Oil or thinner does not soak through. My only complain is that it is an absorbant surface, but can be helped with a oil pre-coat. Easily transported for location work. Don't use water based anything on it, as the surface disolves and becomes unusable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great alternative to gessoed panels Arches Oil paper is very absorbant compared to the lead primed linens I usually paint on. That's not a bad thing. It just takes some getting used to, and it forces me to alter my alla prima brush technique. Thin washes end up looking identical to watercolor and are almost instantly dry. Once I start painting with thick opaque strokes, there is a very nice feeling to it, and I end up doing more realistic renderings than I normally do on my smooth linen canvases. The final portraits I've done on it have a pretty sophisticated but smooth and subtle texture that draws people in to look closer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can stretch it, too! I love this paper! It is the only thing I am painting on now. I can paint with it flat, cut from the roll, or I can stretch it. It stretches tight as a drum. Soak it first in water for about 15 to 20 minutes, and then wrap around stretcher bars and staple. You don't want to pull too hard, or it will tear. As it drys it shrinks up tight like a drum. Fabulous surface. I am adding a layer of oil ground, and it works beautifully that way. Love that I have lots of versatility with the size by purchasing a roll. Strong, resilient, beautiful surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than canvas! Arches oil paper is terrific. It takes layers and layers of oil paint, is light weight and easily attached to backing board, which makes it easy to frame with lightweight material. It makes oil painting even more a joy than ever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from arches oil paper I bought the large sheets first and cut them into smaller pieces so the pads are really convenient on the smaller size the paint was easy to move around and achieve the results that I wanted on the large piece I was having trouble with the paint drying to fast ( so the paper must have absorbed all the moisture and oil that is in the paint)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for Oil Pastels This is a great product for use with oil pastels. The paper allows you to easily apply and blend oil pastels. The results are fantastic colors and depth.

I'm wondering what the thickness of this paper is in mm.  Trying to figure if it will work on a DesignJet T120 24" printer which can only handle up to 11mm.  Thanks.

Asked by: Larry2018a
The thickness of Artists papers and canvas are not measured by mm. Most artists use trial and error to see if different papers can be used with their inkjet printer. The Arches company only lists the gsm (grams per square meter) or LB weight of the paper. You can contact Arches technical support line at w w w dot arches - papers dot com / contact/

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.
