Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful paper! This paper takes the paint beautifully and doesn't get overly saturated. The blocking is nice and firm - keeps the paper flat and smooth. Love the Arches products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Size I bought this block for outdoor landscape painting. It is the perfect size and proportion. I usually use a rough texture but thought I would give the cold press a try. Excellent surface. The block is easy to use and the paper easy to detach after drying. I learned to paint with Arches blocks as a child and will continue to use this tried and true friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arches Blocks Multiples I bought three watercolor blocks very close to the size of a commission I received for three separate paintings. I wanted to work on the three at the same time. Using the blocks gave me freedom to move from painting to painting without restretching paper multiple times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Arches watercolor paper is in my opinion the best watercolor paper that you can buy. It is so worth the price!! It is simply the best quality watercolor paper and I will never purchase any other brand. I have tried other brands to compare and I have not found anything even close to this paper!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST watercolor paper! Although this paper is a bit pricey it is totally worth it! Due to the weight of the paper it doesn't warp nearly as much as other watercolor papers out there. The paper also has the great texture to draw out the best of your watercolors. Once you use this paper you'll never go back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great paper, block separated from backing The paper quality is really fantastic and holds up to many washes. However, I'm only on my second sheet on the block and the entire block has started to separate from the hard backing. I'm a little disappointed about that, but since this is the first block I've purchased I'm not sure if this is typical behavior.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good quality I use this for my watercolor work . It is good quality.

I draw intricate designs with black micron pens and want to print them out on my inkjet printer and enhance by adding watercolor afterwards.  Will this paper make the initial black design look washed out after printing? 

Asked by: SusanCC
I have heard of different artists experimenting with watercolor paper in the inkjet printer. I would advise you to check your printer manual to make sure the watercolor paper will fit through your printer. The ink may appear washed out or off if your printer is low on ink. The texture of the watercolor paper could also interfere with the printing process and produce a washed out looking print. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

I'm fairly new to watercolors and have been using Arches 140# cold press paper and love it. When water is added to the paper, just from normal painting, does it seep through and damage the next sheet on the block?

Asked by: Sumino
No, the under sheets of the watercolor block will not be damaged when you apply color or washes to the top sheet of the block. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

What is difference between cold press and hard press

Asked by: Patty65
Hot press watercolor paper has been pressed with a hot iron press that removes any texture from the paper. Cold press watercolor paper has the opposite texture and is pressed cold to retain its textured surface which is slightly bumpy. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Which watercolor paper holds the most water without swelling

Asked by: MyraWA
Thank you for contacting us. A watercolor block like this is ideal because you do not have to stretch the watercolor paper to avoid warping and can paint directly on the watercolor block. When you have finished the painting you can remove that sheet of watercolor paper from the block of paper sheets with a penknife. This paper will take water without swelling. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
